Recipe Notes

TIP: The original recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of flour and 1 teaspoon of curry powder. I usually add extra flour to thicken the sauce a little more and extra curry powder to really hit home the warm, curry flavor.
TIP: Freeze single servings of leftover curry sauce to pair with leftover rice so you have lunch ready to take to work the next day.
