Korma Curry powder will make a mild curry while Madras will make a hotter one.

Sounds yummy but have you tried Asda tinned chick pea curry, it is free food on green and a fav of mine on a baked potato and a side salad. plus it is oh so fast to get ready when your really hungry.

It was tasty-ish - though pehaps next time I would put a couple of potatoes cut up small in just to make it thicker as the curry sauce was a little thin for my liking. I think I would also add spinach for the last 5 mins or so of cooking for an extra flavour.

re: Asda Chick Pea Curry. I will be buying that tonight. Free you say? That's amazing.Do Asda's do a free range of sausages like Morrisons do (for red days)?

I really love curries, chillies and stir frys with a kick. X

OOOOH - Fatty no More!!

If you love chick peas, chickpeas are great if you roast them for about 40mins. Dip them in what ever spice you like or just season with salt and pepper and they become almost like a savoury snack, such as bombay mix or nuts. x

Liannoso do you roast the ones out of a tin, or do you somehow buy raw ones ( sorry I am a bit of a chick pea blonde) if not in a tin where do you get them from?!!
Snacky thing 'like Bombay Mix' sounds like A Good Idea!

Hi

Just drain the ones from a tin. It's best if they have a little moisture as the spices will stick a little better.

Let me know if you like them x
