Recipe Notes

This curry is super simple. Even though it takes about 90 minutes to cook, the prep time is only about 20 minutes and it’s a single pot. Perfect for a weeknight meal. Come home, prep, put it in to cook and go for a jog.

"This curry was like a performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony that I'd once heard.....especially the last movement, with everything screaming and banging 'Joy.' It stunned, it made one fear great art. My father could say nothing after the meal."
