    I bought some of the Mrs Shah's curry mix pots (one mild and one medium) after my class leader mentioned them a few weeks ago. I don't eat meat so I'll be making a veggie curry but I'm not entirely sure which veggies will work best. Any suggestions please?

    I love cauliflower in curry - aloo gobi is my favourite :D Fine green beans and aubergines work well too, plus spinach and sweet potato. I'd usually throw most of them in, plus maybe some mushroom and chickpeas?

    Yes you mix with a tin of tomatoes and I think you also need to add salt plus whatever you are cooking (chicken, veggies etc.) There is a usually a cooking suggestion on the back and the Mrs Shah website has some recipes as well. I tried the mixed bean curry recipe and it was lovely. Going to try a veggie one next.
