I made this last night and it was great! It's time consuming but not difficult. I used all red peppers and added some peas towards the end of cooking, partly to make it prettier and partly to distract my other half from the large amount of red pepper (but he noticed anyway). I wasn't sure what was meant by dry coconut powder, so I used coconut milk powder and when I looked in the fridge I found that I'd run out of tamarind paste, so I had to leave that out. I served it over plain rice. The only other thing worth mentioning is that next time I'll make it in a non-stick pan because it did stick! Thanks for posting this Daydream! I'll make it again.

We made this for dinner last night. I omitted the peanut butter{as we are not fond of that in our Indian curries}. I used 2 medium tomatoes, 1 small onion, 1 inch ginger and 3 cloves of garlic{both chopped} and not their pastes, 1/2 tsp. of garam masala powder, no sesame seeds, 2 tsps. of coconut powder instead of fresh grated coconut, 2 tbsps. of yoghurt and 1 tsp. of tamarind paste. I didn't use any lemon juice for this. I had to adapt this this way so my family would eat it. It was quite allright for a change and went nicely with hot rotis. Thanks for posting!
