This is a great easy curry for those who never make curries and never want to make curries. It take quite a long time to cook (2 hours simmering) but you can literally throw in the ingredients and leave it to simmer with the occassional stir, so its really easy. Great for a Sunday night, for some reason, with leftovers on a Monday night. Great for students! Great for vegetarians! Please try it! The recipe came from my sister who found it in a magazine and gave it to me and to a Pakistani friend and we have all cooked it for years (and I still do). You can buy creamed coconut in supermarkets or Asian grocers. The recipe is very forgiving: you can half or double any ingredient and it still works out OK. You need a big pot as it looks a lot, but the mushrooms and onions do become smaller with cooking.
