    I've made this recipe several times and I just love it. I did omit the raisins b/c I have this thing with hot raisins. I also used tumeric in lieu of saffron as someone else suggested. This is a regular at our house. Thanks for the recipe.  -  25 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a very good recipe. The raisins were a great addition, and the curry was just enough to give some flavor but not turn it into a "curry" dish. Served it with rice, steamed veggies, and bread. Family enjoyed it. I'll make it again.  -  30 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I really enjoyed this recipe, and so did my family. We didn't have white wine, so I substituted sake. I also used about a 1/4 tsp of tumeric instead of saffron threads, because I simply can't afford the saffron. My mother complained that I didn't use enough salt. I told her to add her own!  -  25 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
