Recipe by Bill Ligertwood
"A delicious variation on the usual tomato sauce. Italy meets India. Use a good quality curry powder. I find that 1 tablespoon of regular curry and 1 tablespoon of Malaysian curry powder tastes great. Most Asian markets carry the Malaysian Powder and I like it because it has some heat to it. You could also add chile powder or chiles if you want it 3-alarm spicy."

We really enjoyed this. I used curry paste instead of powder, and probably a lot more than the recipe called for. We really enjoyed the taste. Thanks for sharing!
I made this tonight, hoping for something different, and I had all the ingredients on hand. It was edible, but not good. I was glad when my bowl was done. All you taste is the curry, there is no smokiness from the cumin and no other flavors. Everything is over powered with the curry. There is too much onion. Most of the sauce was onion. For it to be similar to a tomato sauce, there needs to be more tomatoes. The sauce turns out to be a slightly yellow brown mush that does not look appetizing. The cooking times are inordinately long, if I had cooked that chicken for any longer, it would have been rubber. There is no way that the mush needs to be simmered either because there is no liquid to cook off and it doesn't need time for the flavors to meld--the curry hides everything.
This was pretty good, but I was a little disappointed since, given the ingredients and my tastes in food, I was expecting it to be more like awesome. I made it exactly as written, and was a little surprised to find it not all that spicy after all. Also, it was a bit on the dry side, since almost all the liquid comes solely from the can of diced tomatoes. This was good, mind you, and I gobbled it down over three days, but I just think that it could be even better. Still, worth making again, and even tweaking a little.
Thanks for a great recipe!!!! I love anything that includes curry. ;)
This fusion works unlike some attempts at combining cuisines. I like curried boot leather so I am prejudiced from the onset. This is an easy to put together dish that can be doctored to suit your desired degree of hotness. I love hot so I added fresh hot peppers to Madras curry powder. Omit poultry is you're vegetarian and it's still a great recipe. Thanks Bill!
mmmmm :) I was looking for a good recipe that used curry, and this was great! I used curry paste because that is what I had, and we used shrimp rather than chicken and adjusted the cooking time so the shrimp wasn't overcooked. Added red pepper flakes because my curry was mild. will for sure make again!!
Turned out very dry, I even used more tomatoes then recommended.
