This recipe was terrible - I’m SO mad I wasted time, ingredients and a meal I could have enjoyed on this recipe. No flavor at all. Did anyone even test this recipe before publishing it?!?
This dish is has a lot of steps and elements, so it does take some time. But, it is totally worth it. Sweetness, spiciness, acidity... So much depth of flavor. So much better to create your own curry instead of putting store-bought curry powder into a dish. Yum! Will definitely make this again.
Fry the curry leaves in oil separately before simmering into a sauce. Then they are totally edible. To not eat them would be a waste of the flavor. Please don't write about things you have no familiarity with.
