Recipe by Lauren4372
Curry is a dish that has the reputation of being very spicy. You can control this by adjusting the curry powder to your tastes. I think you will find that this recipe is moderate, and needs little adjustment. From the Williamsburg cookbook, this is an authentic colonial dish brought from India via England. It may date from as early as the 14th Century. Serve with rice, salad and veggie for a full meal.
