    1. The curry is medium spicy but you can omit the chilli powder totally and replace it with paprika instead to make it mild.

  21. This looks great! I am actually more of a fan of the vegetable dishes when it comes to Indian food, and adore chick peas, spinach lentils and such. My OH is a confirmed carnavore though - and moans if I propose a meal without meat lol. Think I could split the recipe and do mine with spinach and his with meat. The thing with fussy adults is they're not as easy to fool as kids. My kids thought Quorn was chicken till they reached double digets.

    1. Vicky, Make the spinach gravy in the same way and you can replace the potatoes with cooked chicken pieces instead.
