      For 5 minutes prep time and a stir of the pot every ten minutes or so, this was a super simple vegetarian dish. Using a bottled curry paste made this a quick prep dish. A very budget friendly dish served with brown rice and Quick Veggie Masala. I think the taste of this dish will depend on the curry paste used- the one I used was a medium heat - I thought the flavour needed more oomph, so next time would use a curry paste with more heat.
