This was the hit of the dinner, no one could get enough, like "mlok" I used a bit less vinegar also. I quadrupled the sauce and used a pound of prawns. I also cheated and used prepared garam marsala instead of making my own. This is destined to become a favorite!

This was wonderful!! I also used 1lb of tiger prawns, adjusted to 3tbsp of vinegar.. I used store bought masala (note - make sure you roast the masala separately before adding!) and the only change I would make would be to use slightly less chopped green chilies (1/4 cup is a bit too much) I would recco 3/4 that amount). Very yummy!!! I made this with some mushroom curry & basamati rice - heavenly :)

This was gorgeous! Like "that dee girl" I quadrupled the recipe for 1 lb of prawns and only added 3 tbsps of vinegar (I used a mixture of white vinegar and balsamic). I also sauteed in butter instead of ghee and used ready made garam masala. I added some brown sugar to counter the acidity and finally sprinkled on some fresh chopped cilantro (corriander). It was a lovely mild curry. (I might add some green chillies next time.) Thank you Mean Chef - I'll definitely make this again.

This was outstanding. I quadrupled the recipe and instead of vinegar I used the tinned chopped green chili peppers which are packed in brine. You might like to try this also with left-over cooked chicken.

Wonderful recipe Mr. Mean Chef! Garnished it with coriander and served with chapatis, dal and an okra vegetable. Fabulous meal. I liked the addition of the coconut milk. Thank you. :) Fay

This is a perfect recipe! It is so delicious, and easy to make. My BF was scrounging the last drops of sauce out of the pan, and wouldn't let me near it! I made one very small alteration - I used less vinegar (tried adding it in small increments and found that for 3x the recipe, 2 Tbsp was enough.) Also I used a garam masala I'd made earlier, but it was very similar to this one. Thanks for posting this.
