      We love our curry and this was no exception. A medium - hot curry, very rich and velvety with the ground nuts, a little goes a long way! More quickly done than you may think, the trick with this kind of dish is to have everything ready to go before you start. Having made Tomato Rice the night before, I still had some left to accompany this excellent supper, but generally when I make this I think I will use plain rice, it is a rich curry and doesn't need anything too strongly flavoured to accompany it. Very much enjoyed, this was made in loving memory of Annelies.
