    I always check out your blog but never commented until now. I just wanted to say that my aunt used to make this curry when I was a little kid. I remember it being so delicious. But I never learned how to make this curry and she passed away a couple of years ago. So I'm very excited to see this recipe! I'm going to make it in the memory of my aunt. Thank you!
