Really good recipe!! I think you can use this as a curry base for any meat, but its even tastier with squid! I used a cup of water instead of the chicken broth, and I did not have coriander, ginger or jalapeño. The red pepper flakes still came through and gave it a little kick! I also used garam masala as my curry powder. Thanks for the recipe!!!
