Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Feta cheese — crumble the cheese just before adding it to the curry to prevent it from melting too quickly and becoming too creamy.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a spicier curry, increase the amount of cayenne pepper or add a chopped chili pepper.
  • Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream for added creaminess.
  • This curry can be made ahead of time and reheated for an easy weeknight dinner.
