I think this is the best macaroni cheese recipe ever! This is a dish I make for the whole family, one that we all love to eat. I've used sweet tomatoes in my recipe as they really complement the cheese, and instead of béchamel sauce I've used single cream as it's a lot lighter. I've also topped the dish off with cheesy breadcrumbs, which give it a wonderful crunch. I think you'll laugh when you see how easy it is to make. I put it together extremely quickly by using my Magimix food processor. Don't worry if you haven't got one ? you can chop it all up by hand instead and then mix it in a bowl.

It's a fragrant yellow curry that incorporates ground peanuts, lemongrass, and tamarind together with warm spices such as cardamom and fennel. Coconut milk is always used in this curry, as are bay leaves (instead of lime leaves). To make it even healthier, I've added carrots and okra, but green beans would be excellent too. The paste has a lot of ingredients, but is still easy to make. Toppings that go well with this curry include fresh coriander, roasted peanuts, and toasted coconut. ENJOY!
