Notes

About the color: I get that vivid orange color from using a Hungarian Paprika that I buy from a local spice shop. The color of your curry might be a little different depending on the spices that you use.
The cost of my recipes is based on the average cost of ingredients I use. It's mostly provided as a guideline for you to understand the true savings you can make when you choose to cook at home.
