    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This recipe comes from a Dutch language curry cookbook I picked up somewhere along the way. The key is to start off with nice beefsteak, the tenderest cut that you can afford.

      this is a great recipe. easy to do. my own variations to the basic are as follows.
      after adding the spices to create soup just add beer a lager preferably this goes with all Indian curries. an old Indian gentleman showed me this a long time ago. I also add sweet potato as a filler and it adds to the colour. those orange coloured sweet potatos. It does improve with age so cook plenty and freeze the excess great for future meals.

      This is nice curry, but there is something that seems missing to me. Or maybe the coconut milk makes it too sweet for me. I had the feeling that the coconut milk could be halved. But I'm not sure. Sorry to be so unspecific. Thank you for the experience.

      Oh my word, the best curry I've ever made myself! The only changes I made were to use a small can of chopped green chilies, and chopped fresh tomatoes instead of the can. I added maybe 1/2 cup of beef broth to make up for the moisture. Sprinkled with cilantro, then served with a lime wedge at the table. My husband and I thought it was tasty, but as soon as we squeezed the lime juice over, it was phenomenal! THANKS!
