This sounds wonderful and I am just picking the last of the season's tomtoes and many are yet green-perfect to make this recipe of yours. What curry mix do you use? Do you roast and grind your own combination of spices or buy a blend of a particular brand like Baba's, Shan, Pyria or? TIA Shanti/Mary-Anne
