This dish is seriously what they call 'curry in a hurry'.
If you get some good quality Indian spices, (which are available in all good oriental or Indian shops) this curry will taste delicious. The basic Indian spices are: garam masala, ground coriander, tumeric, chilli powder, cumin, cardamon and cloves. But of course there are many others you may wish to add depending on the food you are preparing. Sometimes you can buy spices which are already blended together and labelled 'curry powder': these include curry and the basic Indian spices, or you may wish to make your own.
This is a very mild curry that is suitable for the whole family, and very easy to prepare.
