I received a DIY curry kit in my recent FlavrBox*. I couldn't wait to try it out as I've never made curry from scratch before.
The kit came with most of the ingredients, I just had to buy the meat, two tomatoes and an onion. It also came with an easy to follow step by step guide which explained how to make the curry range from mild to hot.
I'm a wimp so I put one chilli in without any puncture marks. Heat scares me.
I followed the instructions and didn't get confused at all, I almost always get confused when cooking so that was a nice change. I served the curry with naan bread and it was the perfect amount for two people. Both myself and Spencer really enjoyed the curry, it was really very tasty.
The DIY curry kit is quite expensive for what it is, but it is still a lot cheaper than an Indian and comes with the added satisfaction that you made it yourself. You can purchase it from the FlavrBox website for £3.50.
