Questions, Comments & Reviews

No WAY! I can't take that much curry, dude. I like it just like this, coz it's not too hot for me & the fam to really enjoy, you know? If it's crazy hot, I just don't enjoy it as much!

I thought it was commical that you consider your recipe "Firy Hot,"
because when I make chicken curry I use 1/2 tablespoon Madras Curry, since my wife doesn't like it too hot , than I put a teaspoon or more of a sambal ( Indonesian hot pepper paste) on my plate.

Happy New Year!
