There's nothing nicer than a hearty curry in the dead of winter. But for that matter, curry is great any time, any season, and this fits the bill perfectly.

This is a super recipe. It wasn't that easy for me, but the end result was just what I wanted. Suggestion: use three Anaheim chilies, and less coconut milk.

Yummy curry thanks Friedel. It was quick and tasted great, but I think it had too many cashews in it. They are put in as a thickener, and most of my recipes with that amount of liquid would use about 100gs. We reduced it to 150g, but it was still too thick for our likes. Next time I will reduce the cashews even more.
