    Baz's Note:

    Authentic, as it doesn't use a commercially produced curry powder. From Pat Chapman's excellent Curry Club Indian Restaurant Cookbook. Use beef or chicken. A delicious, typical curry from South India where they don't come much hotter. This is also delicious cooked in a slow cooker. It keeps well and can be frozen.

      My hat is off to the poster! This curry is wonderful, but you can't tell until it's almost finished cooking. I was really worried. No garlic, no ginger, nothing to pull the flavors together. Except the garam masala. That did the trick. Very good! I cooked this over low heat in a cast iron pot on the stovetop, that being the most convenient way for me. I also added some eggplant I thought might be good in it. I didn't go over the amounts of hot stuff in the ingredient list, but I did use a rounded half teaspoon of red chili powder. Personally, I like eating hot and spicy food, but I think this is about my limit. I'm very happy with it. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
