When I was new to the cooking business, I had a friend that used to do this curried deer recipe that I just loved, and she never gave me the recipe. Well, we’re not using deer meat in this, but the flavors are very much the same as I remember from way back when. We are going to be using some hot spices, but they will be cooled down with some nice coconut milk. So you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
