We love Chinese curry in our house. It has a lovely subtle spice to it and its not too hot, perfect for the kids.

  7. Ah, Chinese chipshop curry, being from up north, I remember it well.
    It does have a very unique flavour, and this recipe looks to have captured it well. I will have to give it a whirl over the winter.

  9. I'd love to try this in my slowcooker. It sounds wonderful.

  10. That looks fabulous-I've never heard of fenugreek...I'm going to look it up right now.
