Chicken, Cauliflower and Bean Curry

I really like spicy curries with a lot of fresh vegetables. When I came across the recipe for a Cashew Curry on the beautiful 101 cookbooks site, I made it immediately. It’s simple, it’s yum and you can swap the vegetables with the ones you have at hand.

I’ve slightly changed the recipe, as I am not a big fan of tofu and I didn’t have any cashew nuts. I am sure it will be even better with the nuts, so make sure you try it.
