This curry dish is even quicker to make if you’ve already got a pre-made portion of Banana Ketchup handy in your fridge or freezer.

What diets is this Banana Ketchup Curry suitable for?

If you’re cooking for people with allergies, be extra careful when checking ingredients and preparing food.

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Banana Ketchup Curry recipe?
