    Where do you buy ground lamb?

  2. Holy wow! This looks amazing. I can already smell the heady aroma of curry in coconut milk.

  3. I’m confused. When you say “from scratch” it means you don’t use any premade mixes right?

  4. Charlie Rivera says:

    Great idea! I would also like to suggest that one research on the composition of different curry/masala/etc. combinations rather than use pre-mixed pastes. That way, you can have different flavors that will suit the kind of meat you are using, rather than your beef, pork, lamb, chicken and even fish tasting the same..
