    I made this last night to use with a slow cooked recipie today, and just wondering if 15g of cardamon is correct? It seemed a lot at the time, and now that's all i can taste.

    Add salt and this is a total keeper. It very closely replicates a dish from my local curry house. I am so pleased to have found it here. Ty Ty!
