This recipe is from my friends, the Patels - they are the real deal. This curry is one to bust out when entertaining - a true winner. The homemade curry paste is delicious and only takes about 10mins to make.

*for the curry paste, either make your own as per recipe below or buy premade in a jar. You can double the mix and keep some in the fridge for next time. It seems like a lot of ingredients, but once they're all out of the cupboard, it's super fast to throw them all together.
