    KiwiHil's Note:

    I was given this curry recipe years ago by a local Indian family. It is so adaptable and so delicious that I make it all the time with whatever ingredients I have. In the ingredients I have specified beef (due to the inflexibility of RecipeZaar!) but you can use beef, lamb or chicken, chickpeas or vegetables or any combination of these. Casserole beef cooks beautifully, it takes about an hour. Chicken with coconut cream is also lovely. Often we have it as a vegetarian/vegan curry with chickpeas and vegetables. Serve with rice, yoghurt and naan bread if you like it!

      We love curry and really enjoyed this!!!! Hot, yes, and that is even leaving out the optional chillies!! Put them in and this would be good and hot! Of the optionals, I used the coconut cream and the fenugreek, used fresh lemon juice rather than vinegar, and omitted the chillies. I didn't use the beef, or indeed any meat. I used a 400 gr tin of chickpeas, adding these at step 5 as directed, and then gave it maybe another half hour or a bit longer, for the flavours to develop a bit. I also gently sauteed some shrimps separately, and added these when I served up. I garnished with coriander and would add more coriander to DHs another time, because he loves it. An Excellent curry indeed, Kiwihil, thank you!!! A definite keeper! Made for Edition 10 tag game, Aussie Forum.
