    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    I had this delightful chicken and also beef curry deep-fried in a coconut in Fiji. I had to come up with my own ingredients and how to cook the coconut as the chefs would not divulge the way he prepared the curry or coconut. This recipe takes a while to prepare, but is well worth the effort. The flavor of the young coconut permeates through the curried mixture when deep-fried and is very tasty.
