Recipe looks great but I have some questions.

1. What does "two chilli halves" mean? Do you mean 1 chilli chopped in half?

2. Should I use a red chilli or a green chilli?

3. When do I put the lemon or tamarind juice in?

Thanks - looking forward to cooking this as I have just come back from Malaysia with lots of fresh spices and some fish curry powder :-)
