    Marysdottir's Note:

    This is a smooth, creamy and fruity curry recipe I found in the October 1979 Bon Appetit magazine. Someday that old magazine will fall apart completely and I'll feel much better if this recipe is recorded somewhere.

      I had this recipe and to my despair lost it years ago. I used to make it for friends time and again as everyone loved this sweet savory curry. Believe me, if you like curry flavor but not the traditional yogurt-type curries you'll love this. Thanks so much to the person who posted it.

      This was a very tasty curry. The chopped peanut garnish really added a great texture and flavour to the fruitiness of the curry. There was a lot of sauce for the amount of prawns, so I steamed some green beans and tossed them in at the end to bulk it out a bit. With rice, roti and the additional green beans, this made 8 servings for us. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
