    Queen Dragon Mom's Note:

    Any Red Dwarf fans out there will recognise this one.... A Kerala specialty, hot and spicy. Use prepared masala if you wish.

      5 big ones here - for the recipe and the reference to Red Dwarf...hehe. I made a couple of changes...I used 2 fresh birds-eye chilli's (with veins and seeds...hooooweeee), I used a 5cm piece of ginger (which I grated on a fine microplane) and I increased the garlic to 3 cloves (also grated). I used four tomatoes because mine were small. I had the three curry-lovers home tonight (dh,ds and me)...we loved this - and I can tell you that we know our curries!! Served with rice,lemon wedges and pappadums. Total heaven.Thanks for a delicous meal!!!

      Ooooh, this was lovely. A wonderful curry. Thank you for posting this. I dropped the cinnamon and used allspice instead. Served with saffron rice and mandarin oranges on the side.
