When I was making this dish, I had a creamy restaurant style curry in my mind. As it turns out I didn’t have cream in the fridge, but I used the next best thing I had, mascarpone cheese. It made the dish creamy, light, mildly sweet and delicious.

  1. I love adding kasoori methi to spicy dishes. Your recipe sounds really flavorful–I ought to try it with tofu.About your question on shortening, I use either Crisco or Earth Balance. Crisco is also vegan and you can find it more easily.And yes, you can find most Earth Balance products at Whole Foods. Hope that helps 🙂
