I haven't tried the curry but there's a lot to be said for adding chocolate to savoury foods - I made an onion tart with cocoa, after all. Chocolate can be quite a savoury ingredient - it's bitter, has a rounded, mellow flavour and when it melts, it adds colour. The only reason we think of it as sweet is because it's blended with milk and lots of sugar to make our most-loved (and sweet) chocolate bars. Choc-chip jalfrezi, anyone?
What do you think? Do you add chocolate to your savoury recipes? If you want to make the curry yourself, you can try it here.
