Can I cook curry in a frying pan?
Whenever you make a curry, it’s a fantastic idea to make sure you use the right kind of pan. I have found over the years that the best kind of pan is a simple aluminium frying pan. The benefit of using this particular kind of pan is that it allows any sauce you are cooking to stick to the bottom of the pan.

Do you simmer with the lid on or off?
