    I made this dish the other night and not only was it super easy to make, it was absolutely delicious. Carla – Although the colour of my dish did not come out as per the above image, after I added the puréed tomato, the sauce seemed to become a lot creamier. :)

    Has anybody made this? The picture certainly looks as though it has coconut milk or something in it but the recipe only calls for tomatoes – how do you get that beautiful creamy look to the curry?
