By Justina Lee
If there's one dish that defines Eurasian cuisine, it has to be Devil's Curry. It's
a deliciously rich, fiery hot curry dish that's often served during Christmas and
on other special occasions. There's no one standard recipe for devil's curry and
everyone seems to consider their family recipe the best ever.
I know some families use bacon bones and sausages while others prefer roast pork
when making devil's curry. So, in essence, you can vary the ingredients and tailor
it to suit your taste.
This is one fusion dish which is fuss free and very simple to cook; I'm pretty sure
your family and guests will enjoy devil's curry with steamed rice or a loaf of crusty
