This, like all Cape Malay curries, has as many interpretations as there are cooks! Cape Malay curries are usually not biting and strong, but rather an aromatic mixture of spices. Naturally this depends on the individual cooks, and the curry can be made much stronger by adding more chillis (hot peppers). This recipe is my way of cooking a chicken curry, more or less: it took some discipline to measure and write down how much of each spice I use! So obviously this is a dish you change to your taste. About salt: I like using a natural sea salt, like Maldon flakes or our own Khoisan sea salt. But if you use these natural salts you need more of it than when using processed table salts. Please adjust to taste. Do not expect the burning curries of India! If you can manage my spice mixture this is a most delicious dish, and the longer it stands, the better it gets, so is perfect for making a day ahead, chilling, and re-heating. But I know that across ponds these recipes are often "lost in translation"!!
