This was our first venture in to the land of "curry" This recipe is a great place to start. The only hitch was the Hunts tomatoes which we could not find so we used crushed tomatoes instead. The one thing we would do differently next time is add less onions otherwise this was fantastic. We served it over curry flavoured rice which can be found on Zaar. We made this exactly as it says "without regard to what type of curry powder the label said" and it was great.
One time: "curry powder" is not a good enough descriptor. I no longer just grab "curry" to fill a recipe. In this recipe the curry makes the difference between balanced and blah. I buy Juliet Mae Spices online, but probably any good spice house will have both Asian and Indian style curries. You made need some minor rebalancing. For me, I would skip the tomato glop too.
This was OK, but I probably won't make it again. If I did, I'd double the sauce ingredients as there wasn't enough sauce for the rice I made to go with this.
