    Lavender Lynn's Note:

    What a lovely curry dish this is! It is quite yellow in color, and the sauce is smooth and velvety. It is the combination of all the spices which makes this great dish. Use a good quality of curry and make it with any meat. It is frequently served with beef liver in East Africa. Try it with lamb or veal as a change.

      This was good, but not great. I added some sliced carrots to it to give it a little colour and sweetness, but apart from that I made it as directed. The relishes are a must, as this is where this curry gets most of it's flavour. It was also nice with an extra (non-traditional) relish of chopped hard boiled eggs, and another of cottage cheese.

      Tasty and delicious. I was considering only putting 1 cup of water into the pot, but decided to follow the recipe as I was reviewing it. Next time I would certainly only use 1 cup of water. The extra cup meant there was way too much liquid and I'd rather not have to thicken the curry and just have the full taste of the curry gravy. Certainly a lovely curry and I'm pleased I picked it. Will be making again.

      Excellent! This curry is so flavorful and yummy. I made it as directed except that I did not need the cornstarch slurry. Sure wish that I'd made more - I devoured this in one sitting. This is going into my Best of 2011 cookbook. Thanks Lynn for an awesome keeper. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.
