Hi @naturesdencatherine Hari mentioned a vegetarian option for this recipe on Instagram and it was to use marrow and chickpeas I think I’ll try that.

Thank you @Hari Ghotra that’s great. I’ll miss them out. It’s such a lovely spice combination.

You could just miss it out @traceyross or use cashews but they will add sweetness and make it a bit thicker then the coconut but it will still be nice!

Hi @Hari Ghotra is it possible to miss the coconut out as I don’t have any. Could I add a little cashew nuts instead for richness?

One of my favourites. I was going to cook it this weekend anyway as I’ve got hold of a coconut! Can’t cook along live though as it clashes with my sous chefs bedtime 😀👶

I ‘ll be there. Love this curry, I use a recipe that has dagharful in it which gives an amazing flavour and it is just so different and crazy to use.
