Cook's Tip:
If you misfired with the seasoning (and we all do that sometime!) and your curry is saltier than you like, don't throw it out. All you need to do is peel and cut a large potato in half and add it to your curry. It will absorb the extra salt!

    It was delicious! Next time, I would add tri-color peppers so it doesn't look too green! Oh and I paired it with raita!
