Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Chow mein noodles can be used instead of shoestring potatoes.
  • tip 2
    The shrimp mixture can be made up to 24 hours ahead of time; add cashews and potatoes just before serving. Also, the endive leaves can be separated, washed, wrapped in a damp paper towel and stored in a plastic bag up to 24 hours before serving.

    You may find several types of curry powder in your grocery store, but the most common blends are labeled either curry powder (mild) or Madras curry powder (a bit hotter).
