Growing up in Durban, South Africa, with its large Indian population, like so many expatriates (I now live in Canada) I developed a passion for Indian cuisine. I prefer to make my own curry blends (see recipe #134756) from scratch as the so called curry you can purchase at grocery stores is more like a condiment or flavouring than it is the genuine thing. I also feel that chicken thighs and legs make the most flavourful curries as do baking them in either coated cast iron ware or stoneware casseroles. Flavour also improves overnight - in a non reactive container - and reheated the following day. Serve with basmati rice and "sambals".
