I made this recipe customized to 8 servings just to test it out. Kinda goofed and used too much fresh ginger but the results were still excellent! The curry paste I used was 'Bhuna' a tomato based paste. The whole family enjoyed it and I'm about to make up a new batch. Good stuff!:) Read More

ever since we sampled the "Indian Pizza" at Trader Joe's my family got hooked on them. There's a great recipe for "Indian Chapati Bread" on this site too. Now I can't wait to top flat breads with this chutney and sprinkle w/goat cheese! Read More

Love it! Thanks for posting. For the curry paste the store had green or red. I got the red and was a little worried it might be to hot so I put in a little less. But I think I could have put the whole amount if not a little more in. I wasn't sure how long to simmer for so it simmered for a half hour then I boiled it quickly for about 30sec and then put in the fridge. It was just right. Served it on Trader Joes Tandoori Garlic Naan bread. Read More

This makes a really nice chutney. I made half a recipe and it still made a huge amount (1 litre). I only had Thai curry paste so I substituted 1 tsp of garam masala. No mixed spice either so used the spices recommended in the editor's note. It went very well with the veggie samosas we ate. Everyone enjoyed it. Read More
