2 delicious weekend curry recipes

There’s nothing better than a big cook-up on the weekend, and the smell of curry emanating from the kitchen certainly gets your mouth watering. Curry crosses many cuisines around the world and once you develop a taste for it, it’s hard to ignore a new recipe. These weekend curry recipes are favourites at both our homes. They’re very different in flavour but equally as delicious, nourishing and both smell amazing.
