This is a lovely curry, full of meat and fruit. It is unusual but oh so yummy. It's always best eaten the next day. It comes from Indonesia, where the lady that gave me the recipe says she makes it up and then sits it on her windowsill for a day for the flavours to meld. I like to eat it straight away, but leftovers are definitely better. I hope you enjoy it :)

A nice twist on curry. I actually preferred it the day I made it. I used chicken (personal preference) and served with jasmine rice. Thanks for sharing!

This was a surprise for me, GREAT. I make the curries first then add side dishes of most of the fruit. Put them all in one dish was faster and a lot less hassle, saved on the washing up too. I will be cooking this again soon, but, I will try chicken instead of beef, as I think that the pineapple suits chicken better. If you like a slighter curry this is the one for you. I served it with cumin and almond rice. This is not the first Australian curry recipe to surprise me, I like the attitude of the Aussies when it comes to food, they are not afraid to mix the flavours. Thanks for posting this one, I'll add it to my Sri Lankan recipe book.

This probably had one of the best aromas during cooking of anything I have ever cooked. I made the night before, refrigerated and warmed up for dinner the next night and it was simply spectacular. Really wonderful balance between the curry and fruity flavors and I wouldn't change a thing.
