“The peanut butter gives this recipe a lovely flavour. It is easy to prepare and it's quicker to cook than ordering take away. You can use frozen beans or peas. Just make sure that the beans or peas are thawed and drained of any liquid. Actually, the basis of this curry can be used for most vegetables. Just let your head go when making it.”
