My dear MIL passed this recipe on to me, as it is one of DH's favorites. This is a great way to use leftover meat to create a delicious and classy meal. I use cubed cooked pork tenderloin with great results.This curry dish is served over rice. Side dishes can be any combination of cashews, peaches, diced apples or chutney.

This is a good tasty recipe, a little different to the the normal curries i normally make. I halved the curry powder and added other spices like cumin and coriander. Went down a treat.

I`ll just say "YUK" but IF I was very hungry it would be much better than nothing.....

Recipe is a good starting point for a quick curry. I added some chopped red pepper with the onion, substituted coconut milk for most of the milk, and added some frozen peas with the liquids. Also used ground lamb for the meat. Very tasty, though I ended up adding some extra salt to my portion.
