What an interesting and unique curry- very much enjoyed by all. The sauce has a very "meaty" flavor from the bacon, and that was nice a change of pace. I used all the toppings listed, excepted for bell peppers and I used chopped macadamia nuts instead of pine nuts. The shredded egg was my FAVORITE- it adds a completely new layer of flavor. The next day, I at the leftovers with some tamarind chutney, and that was delicious as well!
