    Carianne's Note:

    This was from Bon Apetit Sept 2001. Very very good. We adjusted the recipe to make it lower in fat. This makes a lot, but you'll want the leftovers!

      these flavors blend so well! the end result is more subtle than you might imagine with all the spices in it. i will definitely make this again, and perhaps add a bit more cayenne. i am going to have the leftovers for my lunch today. everyone is going to be jealous when they smell this!

      I made the big mistake of halving this recipe and nearly missed out on tasting it as DH had piled most of it onto his plate! It is delicious. Spicy in a warm, not hot, way, with a lovely gravy. I highly recommend this wonderful dish to anyone who enjoys Indian food. I just don't see how 2 lbs of shrimp can feed 8 though when 1 lb barely fed 2 - it's just too good!
