It’s no surprise how much I love to experiment in the kitchen, after all its how new recipes are made and often the ones we enjoy the most. I have learnt over time to make sure I have a pen and paper in the kitchen so I can jot down the ingredients as I go as it can be easy for me to forget by the time I have sat down to eat.
So this recipe came about when I needed to use up some ingredients that I had in the fridge and didn’t want them to go to waste. And we both love anything to do with a curry so this was something we put on the menu a week after the first time of making it, love it.
We recommend using Greek yogurt and not the Greek style as it is thicker and is much better in this dish.
Some recommended items from our kitchen for this dish…
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
- A lot of our dishes are pyrex, great for cooking. Perfect for roasters too and easy to clean.
- A big time saver for chopping veg with a veg chopper, from onions to carrots this is a god send to chop quickly.
