Reading two teaspoons of crushed fresh chillies, I thought, nah, why that doesn't look so much - just bung a bit more in. Luckily our new au-pair says she likes spicy food, and actually meant it, wasn't just being polite. It nearly took the roof off my mouth.
But unlike the disastrous goan curry, you could taste the ginger, garlic and coriander nicely.
Which was something I guess.
And it got the thumbs up from, yes you guessed it, my husband. So all good there.
