    Girl from India's Note:

    I have my roots in Southern India and there is a lot of coconut used in South Indian cooking. The curries there are served with simple steamed rice or Rice crispies. My husband is East + Anglo Indian and does not like coconut based curries too much. So I relish these curries only at my mum's place or cook them for parties that we throw (a novelty for my husband's family and our friends)
