This is one of the nicest currys I have ever made and really simple, did find it it only made 3 adult portions but still low in calories. It wasn’t very spicy as I was concerned about overdoing it used- took seeds out the chilli, 2 teaspoons of curry paste and 1.5 tsps on ginger. Will definetly make again.
