    this curry was nice, but not as good as I was expecting. Enjoyed the distinctive lemongrass flavour, however wouldn't slice it next time as chewing on it wasn't very plesant, will put in whole and remove at end of cooking.  -  26 Apr 2011


    I agree re lemongrass, there was too much liquid (I thought there may be when I put the extra water in) had to thicken with cornflour. But tasty and will try again without the water and see how it goes  -  29 Jul 2012


    This is a great tasting dish that everyone enjoyed. The chilli was left out. This is now in my favourites book.  -  14 Aug 2011
