Notes

Thomas Lau started cooking Indian food from scratch in early 2010 and determined the method too tedious. He recently discovered a consistent means of producing flavorful curry that can be pared with nan and/or rice. The flavors develop over time and is best prepared and cooked a day in advanced. The curry can be stored in the refrigerator for over a week.
