A feel good dish consisting of rich spices and coconut milk that gives this dish a wonderful flavour and creamy texture.

I’m sure you’ve already come across my Instagram stories and might have noticed that I’m a curry girl through and through! Over the years I’ve prided myself on making the perfect curry, combining the right amount of spice and texture for a winning pot of curry.

This is one of the main reasons I started my blog, to share what I’ve taught myself with others because nothing beats a home cooked meal.

Hope you enjoy trying out my recipes.
