Delicious, delicious, delicious! We loved this wonderful curry. It was hot, sweet, spicy, tart and tangy. I served it over steamed jasmine rice. What a lovely meal. I love how easy it is to make curry and would rather make my own than having take out. Thank you so much for sharing this treasure. :)
