Kevin's Amazing Curry

Photo: SuzukiKev

This is a curry I have been making for awhile now and I'm told it tastes just as good if not better than going to a restaurant (Hope my friends don't lie) So please enjoy. I worked it out once and you can do this whole curry including everything below for between 1200 and 1500 calories each person, I know it's quite high, but well worth the treat.
