I would like to try it tonight. When you say 1/2 coconut, do you mean 1/2 of a whole coconut? Can grated coconut be used instead and how much?

Reply

maria February 23, 2014 at 2:27 am

Yes half of whole coconut and grated is just fine.

Good recipe. I followed the recipe properly but mine turned out a little bitter. Perhaps I should add less mustard seeds next time? Thanks!

Gloria use mustard seeds as per your preference also just crackle them if they burn it will leave a bitter taste ….. the secret is just crackle them don’t burn them..thanks for trying curry :)

Hi Maria, I cooked it and it was good. But i have one question. You said to make the paste do not add water whereas yours looks as if you added water, it does not look dry. I just followed your recipe otherwise and it turned out to be good. I like all your recipes and am going to try one by one all of them! Thanks for your efforts!

Reply

maria July 19, 2012 at 5:23 am

Amita I am glad you liked it. Also I have mentioned in my instructions that you can add a little water if you require. If you wish thinner consistency you could add little water. DO try them and lemme know how were they?

Love,
Maria

the 2tbsp mustard seeds was too much for us… i think it should be perhaps two tea spoons instead….. mine turned out to be yellow curry… but it was really good except for the overdose of mustard seeds… definitely will try this recipe again with less mustard seeds…

sean July 31, 2011 at 5:28 pm

This was fantastic. The curry is so delicious that I forgot abt the prawns far a minute:). Mine did not turn out red more of a yellow curry however I put 10 chillies 5 kashmiri and 5 spicy ones. No corriander seeds so put the powder instead. Was really good thanks!
