I tried this curry at Muthu's Curry House in Singapore only because you did Martha -- and it was awesome! My kids liked it because it wasn't too spicy - I have to try it at home now that you have the recipe posted on the website! The owners of the restaurant are just amazing people! I met them spoke to them and told "I'm only here because Martha was here - call me crazy!" - it was fun!
