Great curry recipe! I made my own curry powder, very spicy, and it was perfect with the boiled eggs. I did cut my eggs in quarters instead of just in half. You suggested peanuts and raisins as possible condiments; I added these in with the brown rice I served with the curry. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!
