Add spice to your taste: This curry recipe is very light, kid-friendly, and not too spicy, but if your a fan of spicy food, feel free to add chili.

Use coconut milk from a can: Canned coconut milk is the best for curry recipes due to its flavor and thicker consistency.

Feel free to change the veggies: If you're not a fan of zucchini or spinach, you can switch to other types of vegetables you like. Aubergine and sweet potato are a great choice too.
