Another recipe from the Philadelphia Inquire recipe section published 29 or more years ago.
This is not an easy recipe, there is a lot of chopping and pre cooking as well as the baking it self. You need to give yourself plenty of time to make this dish.If you like a good curry this recipe will be well worth the effort and time.
I have changed this recipe slightly so it is no longer as it appeared in the paper but very very close.
