A Perfect Curry

How do you feel about curry? I'm for hottish with an interesting rice; chicken preferred.

There are three curry restaurants in and around Wells and they all disappoint. They have a McDonald's attitude to feeding the ignorant, ethnic English. The taste is delicious in an obvious, in-your-face kind of way; the flavour concentrated in heavy, creamy, fat-thick sauce. The raging thirst when you get home, plus indigestion and bloating, confirm that the chef's preparation binged on salt and MSG.

I wish I could eat the curry the Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis prepare for themselves. However, we have a recipe from the Internet and Clare has acquired the fresh ingredients - spices and all - so I'm looking forwards to a superior curry dinner tonight, something approximating the Platonic curry ideal.
