Vegetable curry

Sometimes a little curry heat is just what’s needed, but you can reduce the amount of chilli if it tends to make you cough. You can vary this recipe with different vegetables. If rice is too bitty, try serving with soft mashed potato. If you want to fortify, try adding full-fat yoghurt.
