    Lou van's Note:

    I (slightly) adapted this recipe from a book by Charmaine Solomon and have been cooking it for approx 18 years. I often add various veg (we like small eggplants and okra), if I do I add another tin of chopped tomatoes to make more sauce. Goes very well withSri Lankan Yellow Rice (Kaha Bath) recipe number 268510. Originally the recipe serves 2-4 however if you add the optional veg and tomatoes then it stretches to about 6 depending on how much extra you add :)

      Great recipe, I used lime juice instead of the vinegar, chicken thighs and added a cup of sliced shitake mushrooms. It was enjoyed by all!

      A delicious curry, and worth that little bit of extra time it takes - not overly hot, but jam packed with wonderful flavours - thanks so much for posting

      Good curry. Used about 11/2lbs skin- and boneless chicken thighs, about 11/2 cup sliced mushrooms and two cans of chopped tomatoes. Also used balsamic vinegar. At the beginning I thought the amount of cumin would be too much, but the spices are very well balanced. I got a lot of sauce which is great. You say it serves 2-6 but (at least the way I made it), I got five servings. It freezes well and I am very pleased I chose to make this curry. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC, Spring 2009.
