    1. We are big fans of potatoes. Practically anything made with it will be a sell-out. I have run out of ideas on what to cook for this weekend.......... and contemplating this delicious and attractive curry very seriously.

    2. The curry looks so nice. I like the color. This is quite special that grated coconut are added, most curries using coconut milk. Add some beef or lamb and serve with rice or bread, must be really good. :)
