    GoldsmithLissa's Note:

    Wonderful recipe for Rajasthani curry from Northern India...but very neutral flavour that would appease someone who is reserved about experimenting with exotic foods. To reduce spice, remove seeds from peppers...leave them in for the full effect!

      Really delicious and unusual curry! I used 35 chilies, and we found this to be a nice level of spice. The clove flavour really stands out. Next time I'm planning to try this with goat meat. Yum! Thanks for posting!
