“From Ruta Kahate's 5 Spices 50 Dishes. This curry has an interesting sweet/sour/spicy flavor. I strongly advise that you prepare this in a well-ventilated area and open a lot of windows--the aroma from the cooking spices will definitely clear out your sinuses (or, at least, they cleared mine!). I used diced chicken breast and served over basmati rice.”
