Here are some recipe suggestions for you. You can use these recipes with just about any of Mamaji's sauces however we recommend you first check for allergens and whether you want a mild or hot option. Mamaji's Curries are created for flavour first so they are not designed to burn your mouth off either.  Enjoy!
