    Tried the tikka masala and have to say it was fantastic. Best home made curry ive made. Completely forgot the creme fraiche first time and was still lovely.

    Going to have to try the pasanda at some point that looks awesome too.

    Thanks for sharing these recipes

    Great recipe! I love indian food but struggle to find a list of pro point values specifically made for indian food. Do you know if there is a list available with the pro point values? I would appreciate it. Thanks
