Made this on Christmas Day, 2006, with basmati rice. It makes a pretty spicy curry, so if you’re not sure, halve the dry spices. You can always add them back later if you want to. Just cook them for a couple more minutes if you do.
This recipe is cooked in a process adding ingredients every couple of minutes. I wrote it in sequence to help keep it easier to follow, and you may want to keep the additions sorted into little bowls so you can just add them as you need them.
