If you prefer a curry that’s rich and mild, this recipe is for you! This creamy curry tastes super-

decadent but it’s also packed with plenty of healthy vegetables. It’s equally delicious made with

cream cheese or creamed coconut, so you can choose to make it vegan, too. Enjoy it with your

favourite pilau, roti’s or warm naan bread.

for the VEGAN option swap the cream for coconut cream and use vegan cream cheese or omit if preferred.
