    Loving this combination! This will probably be my new go-to recipe. It's just the right amount of effort to put into an interesting, flavourful curry blend, without getting overly fussy or needing to search for hard to find ingredients - I had all of these things in the pantry. I made half the batch, exactly as written except for using slightly less ground cardamom than called for. Thanks Lazyme! Made for ZWT7.
