Sweet n sour curry


Servings: 2         Time: 35 minutes         Difficulty: easy

Isn’t curry such a comfort food? It’s like a warm hug for your soul, especially in the colder seasons. We love all kinds of them. This is a creation with all leftovers our fridge had to offer. So feel free to replace ingredients if something is missing or you prefer to add another ingredient.

Make it as hot and spicy as you like. This depends absolutely on our individual mood and taste but in general we are in team spicy!  Enjoy 🙂
