About this recipe: This is a flavourful curry sauce from a recipe given to me by an Indian friend. It's great with chickpeas or vegetables. This sauce also freezes beautifully.

Why do we always have to add "1 tablespoon curry paste" ? I thought this was a cook's site, surly it's not hard to make your own masala! Simply opening jars should not be allowed! - 30 Nov 2008
