    I used leeks, red peppers, carrots and onions to make a soup and added veg stock and 1 tsp of curry powder and it came out lovely!

    Thanks! Will try it out over the weekend. I ended up making a carrot and butternut squash curry with green beans and a meat-free fillet mixed in. Going to have it for lunch tomorrow with cous cous.

    I just made a tofu curry and even if I do say so myself it was pretty damn good :D

    To kick off I fried (in frylight) a tsp of ginger powder, 3-4 cloves of garlic chopped and half an onion chopped fine.
    I then put in about half a mug of mixed frozen veg and fried it a bit more. Added 1 tbsp of medium curry powder, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground corriander, 1 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp mixed herbs. Fried it all a bit more and then added a tin of chopped tomatoes. Brought to the boil and then reduced the heat. I then added around half a mug (didn't measure) of natural low fat yoghurt and stirred it in. I then blended it all together with a hand blender to make a tasty curry sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.

    In a seperate pan I fried tofu in tandoori spices, garlic granules and paprika (using frylight again) - as it started to brown I added a whole onion and fried for another 5 mins. I then added this to the curry sauce, brought to the boil and served with rice and SW curry wedges (chunky SW chips coated in curry powder, hot paprika, garlic granules, oregano, salt and pepper). Topped with fresh chilli.

    Top syn free curry :D Lacking in superfree, but could have had a side salad I guess.
