'This curry is the perfect pantry staple curry, as well as being sweet and mild in flavour making it suitable for kids tastebuds. My 2 year old niece couldn't get enough of it!

For the adults, serve the curry up with some freshly chopped coriander leaves, finely sliced red chilli and a scattering of fried shallots for a bit of crunch.'
