    Sameveel's Note:

    This is my own recipe combining several of my favourite ingredients. This can be altered in a variety of ways, including adding different vegetables such as cauliflower or white potato, adding grilled chicken, paneer or a tin or two of chickpeas. This makes a substantial batch, which I usually portion out and freeze.

      Made half a recipe and was good but not spicy enough for us. Need to get fresh curry powder or make my own. Didn't have zucchini so used spinach. Served with Madhur Jaffrey's Naan Bread and Indian Rice Pudding.

      Soooooooooo very very nice. I halved the recipe which was simple enough. But I do have a confession to make - I forgot to add the coconut cream and only realised when I had served it and started eating. :-( However it still was delicious and didn't seem to detract from the meal. Served with a dollop of Greek Yoghurt and popadums. Made for PAC Fall 2012.
