4/5

Durban butter chicken with samosas, carrot sambal, pol roti rice and a chakalaka bean salad. Good fun to make but I would say the samosas do take a bit of time! Make in advance of the curry!

What a feast! Great job, Helen - it all looks fantastic!

5/5

Easter Curry treat with the Bunnies! Durban Butter chicken with Coconut Sambol (which is so good), Aubergine with Mirchi blend, South African Samoozas, Spicy Cauliflower and basmati rice. Perfect. :-)

An amazing spread - great job, Helen!
