I often talk about ingredients like tamarind, mango powder, or lime juice that infuse tartness into a curry to provide a crucial balance and cut down the heat from chiles. That’s exactly what the fresh, juicy, tart-sweet pomegranate does to this sauce, and in addition, it studs it with its ruby-red luminescence to make for a stunning presentation. During the months when pomegranates are not in season, I have made this with fresh tart cherries, pitted and cut in half.
