Another favourite of ours - chicken bhuna, with chana masala, jeera rice and paratha. This was our first time trying jeera rice, and we switched to red onions, rather than white onions! Wowsers! It was delicious, and we'll definitely switch rices more frequently. Think we went a bit full on with carbs though! After having vegetable pakoras to start, with tomato raita, I don't think I'll need to eat until curry night next week. The children enjoyed their favourite curry, Butter Chicken. So glad they now participate in our curry nights. All these were from the Curry Legend Book. The Spicery never fails with taste!

Check that out!!!! Looks amazing Victoria - nothing wrong with triple carbs.... You'll have to get the kids to make the butter chicken for you next time. Great to hear you all enjoyed it so much!

I love everything about The Spicery website and the products are excellent. The cost of shipment £40 to Ireland and 6 days to get here was incomprehensible, hence 4 stars & future purchases ... we'll see...
