Indian Shrimp Curry

This recipe is taken from the 1980 Milk Calendar. One way to beat the heat is to join it, as the East Indians discovered centuries ago. The Indians enjoy their curries very hot and spicy, and tend to cool them down with condiments. Our recipe has been adjusted to suit Canadian tastebuds, but you can add as much curry powder as your own family likes.
