Possibly not one for the purist but does anyone fancy trying this one?

A pretty interesting slant on what our Victorian ancestors thought a curry should be.

I have a Victorian cookery book by Eliza Acton that has some great curry recipes in it, also a forme of cury which is a facsimile it's great if you can read the old English.

Sounds quite good to me, but then I'm not a purist when cooking curries, making up as I go along, depending on ingredients available.

I nearly alwys add fruit, depending what I've got in the house - apples, pineapple, dried fruit - mango if I'm feeling flush. Finish off with a good dollop of coconut cream or creme fraiche or yoghurt and chopped coriander.

It's all down to personal taste isn't it?
