Use your common sense as to how hot you wish this curry to be. Just add the chilli powder and the bird's eye chilli paste a little at a time and keep tasting. Remember that as the liquid evaporates, the more concentrated the heat will be. The garlic quantity may seem excessive, but it isn't, honestly!
