African Curry – so quick & delish!

If you don’t have curry leaves… let us know… and we’ll pop some fresh freebie leaves into your next delivery! ūüôā

This curry is so quick and easy to make. The end result is a very mild, slightly sweet curry with the cardamom and lime adding a subtle touch of spice and freshness.

TIP: Use the vegies that you know your kids will eat! Once you’ve got the thumbs up on the recipe… you can start getting a little more adventurous! ALSO – great for the Sunday night cook up (ie. using everything in your fridge before the next delivery!)

THANK YOU to Sonja Shradha Devi for this recipe found in a copy of her handwritten recipe book Yummy In My Tummy (discovered at the Mangrove Mountain Ashram).
