Within a day or two of my arrival in Calcutta I had my first brain curry. Mildly spiced and buttery, I loved its melting smooth texture, and wanted to reproduce the dish on return. When brains became increasingly difficult to find in England I experimented with sweetbreads instead, which worked a treat. Serve with basmati rice and a mixed green salad.
