Recipe by awalde

This is delicious curry, easy and fast. The original recipe is from Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, a Ugandan-born British journalist and author of Pakistani descendents. Recipes are described in her fantastic book "The Settelers Cookbook", a Memoir of Love, Migration and Food.

This was fabulous! So flavorful. I didn't have sesame seeds so used sesame oil, and only had ground cumin. Made for Best of 2014 game.
