Cynthia, thank you for such a big help with roti and curry recipes :)

Celery stalks with leaves can be substituted with celery stalks only if you can’t find leafy ones. I’ve done it several times and curry was still delicious.

Use less or not chillis for children friendly version.

  1. Home made curry paste. It will be much better than the shop bought one for 100%

  2. I like so this recipe, I will try. Gloria

  3. that looks wonderful! how long does it keep? can you freeze it?

  4. Kitti – Thank you for visiting. I have never tried to freeze it, usually I make triple portion, I use half the first day for Perfect Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk
    and the next day or the day after I make it again, or use it for Egg Curry.
