  1. Hi jomeldelacruz,

    great recipe! Thanks.

    I added a few more ingredients and i must say it tasted very nice!
    I added some lime juice, salt, cilantro, replaced the coconut cream with coconut water and coconut milk (mixed 1:1).

    In another attempt i even added some chicken and replaced the vegetable broth with chicken broth. I guess it completely changes the traditional recipe, but boy did it taste good!

    let me know what your thoughts are.

  2. Thank you. Have been looking for this recipe everywhere. Any preference of brand with curry powder?

  3. Jomeldelacruz, you make one heck of a sauce. Thank you for the hook up. I have more or less turned your recipe into a soup by adding mushroom and more potato. I also took the advice of Udai and threw in the lime and salt and replaced the coconut cream with coconut milk. I have probably used your recipe about 6 times already. You can come to my house and cook any time you want! Thank you!

  4. I will try this thank you for the comment, I'm just waiting for you guys to try it because I'm not good in cooking. I will try my best to do this and will reply right away,.

  5. Hi, Guys!!

    Thank you soooooo much!!!! :) because you liked this simple recipe more than I do, I always wanted to eat Roti Canai with this Curry dip and it's really hard for me to do it, because I can only try this whenever I visit Sabah Malaysia,

    Udai- actually you can also add potatoes if you want to, and about your additions and modifications, lemme try that too to give some other kick! thanks again!

    DG- heheheh!!! I would love to! going to other place and cook?? especially to your home, let me know :) that's what I always want to do, preparing foods for everyone, and whenever I hear comments and feedbacks, that gives me more satistafction :) Thanks!!

    Anonymous- Thanks!!! I'll wait for your reply and feel free! I'm not good in cooking as well, I am just trying what I'm learning from my friends, specially foreign friends....

  6. Anon- Any local curry powder will do, no particular rand.. :) Thank you! :)

  7. This is amazing! As good if not better than any Roti Canai I've eaten…

    Going to use this one lots!

  8. I assume you use red curry? I have been looking for this sauce recipe forever!!!!

  9. Hi... where you say 1 clove in the ingredients is this a clove of garlic or an actual clove? I'm new to cooking curry so I really haven't got a clue!! Thanks.

  10. Dear Anonymous - i think that if he meant garic he would probably have written garlic rather than clove so as to not confuse someone that is new to cooking.
    however when he said a 1 tsp curry powder i think he was trying to confuse you - he really meant 1kg sugar
