i still don't get it...i could SWEAR you mentioned you disliked curry way back when!! and i thought when i made this the first time it was unbearably spicy and hence you couldn't eat it. so you may wanna tone down the spice in the recipe. the secret is to eat a bunch of white rice with it--it absorbs the spice and eases the pain!
