Thanks! I had the same thought as you when uploading it haha. We had a bit of a heatwave in Melb so it's too hot to cook anything decent.

Oh my gosh I am so glad that you are a curry fan! I am from India and when my friends come over I feed them traditional Indian style food but it's too spicy for them. Many people don't like Indian style food because of the smell or the heat so it's great that you do cakecrumbs! ^_^ You just made my day!! XD I'll definitely try making this and feed it to my parents and grandparents cause they love their traditional food. :)

Very much so! I never had them until about 5 years ago. Growing up the food in our house was very plain and no one liked spicy food (my mum can't even handle pepper). When I met my now partner I was exposed to a whole new world of cuisine, Indian among it and I fell in love with Indian food. I can't handle really really spicy food (apparently caucasians have more pain receptors on their tongue, damn genetics!) but I do love some heat to my food. The spices are so beautiful and fragrant -- what's not to love!

If you try the recipe I'd very much love your impression of it. My curry recipes are likely not very traditional. I only make them for family really, so I've always wondered how someone who was familiar with traditional Indian cuisine would perceive them.

That said, I'm led to believe that curries with coconut cream like this one tend to be from South East Asia, and Indian curries use yoghurt as a thickener istead. Is this true?

Yes right you are my friend :) curries that use coconut milk tend to be from Thai cuisine styles. When my mom and I make curry we usually make it with plain yogurt and dump it into the pot. The part of India I'm from enjoys a mixture of coconut milk curries and yogurt ones. I enjoy the coconut milk curry because the taste is more mild. When I use yogurt instead the heat is a bit harsher (if you know what I mean) XD. Basically, curries from India are spicier while the southeastern Asians tend to have milder food.

I know exactly what you mean. :D Thanks for elaborating on that. I love both styles so much. I always have yoghurt and coconut cream on hand for that very purpose (I have a yoghurt-based curry bubbling away in my slow cooker as we speak xD ). My partner tends to prefer the coconut curries as coconut is one of his favourite flavours.
