    Anyone got a decent veg curry recipe?

    I've had a look on the recipe thread but can only see one with root veg..

    Have got spinach, potatoes, green beans, tinned tomatoes.. have all the spices in the cupboard.

    anyone got a basic recipe I can use these in?

    ta!

    I need assistance as I've just discovered pizza hut now do online orders to my house now, so someone needs to save me from myself!

    Do you do a food diary it might be a good idea then we might be able to see if there is anything you are doing wrong, not tha I am saying you are. There are loads of options to try if you are having very slow options but I think the first is to do the food diary like I said just to make sure.
