   “Despite the simplicity of this recipe, it is
   delightful and subtle, although this depends very much
   upon the quality of the basic ingredients used.” IMH
     Melt butter, and soften the very finely chopped
   onion over gentle heat. When tender, but not browned,
   add curry powder (which should be of good quality, and
   ideally home made) and continue cooking 1-2 mins. Stir
   in flour and cook to make a roux for a further minute
   or so. :    Remove from heat and when slightly cooled,
   gradually stir in stock and milk. Return to heat and
   stir while bringing to the boil. When boiling, reduce
   heat and simmer gently 15 minutes or so.
     Add coconut milk (or creamed coconut if the milk is
   unavailable) and stir to incorporate. Strain, correct
   seasoning and reheat. Serve with a little cream
   marbled on the surface, and a slice of lemon.
