    Sounds great. How long will it keep in the fridge?

      About a month 🙂

    Hi Sophia, how long does this keep in the fridge? Thank you!

    hello, my son has a nut and seed allergy, can you recommend anything else as a sub for the almonds and possibly even the coconut? Thanks so much, its so hard to make a curry avoiding all nuts!

      Hmmm, that is more tricky. I would have suggested seeds but if he has a nut and seed allergy I would basically try and leave both out all together and make the paste without. You might find you need to add a little extra liquid but one other thing that might work is adding a little silken tofu.

    I know this a korma so traditionally has nuts. But can this be somehow made without nuts? We have a nut allergy at home.

    Cheers Linda

      You could use seeds, anything like sunflower seeds would work nicely.
