Notes about this recipe

  • veronicafrance on March 23, 2013

    Naughty Nadine uses yoghurt and lime zest in the method which are not mentioned in the ingredient list, so you need to add these to your shopping list. Nadine Abensur is one of my favourite vegetarian cookbook authors, and she doesn't disappoint here. Like many of her recipes, it's rather elaborate, but in its favour, you can prepare rice and curry in advance and put them together half an hour before the meal. You could vary the vegetables too. Good for feeding a crowd. I'll certainly make it again.
