Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This sauce base may be combined with 1 cup light cream and is delicious with shrimp, crab or chicken. If you use lamb, combine it as a gravy. Condiments for curry: chopped egg, green onions, peanuts, crumbled crisp bacon, coconut and a must, Chutney. Rice of course is always served.

For chicken curry, boil a small chicken. Cool, removed meat from bones. Chop meat in bite size cubes. Use 1 c curry sauce, 1/2 c cream and 2 c chicken broth. Thicken to gravy consistency. Add chopped chicken and heat
