    I've made lots of curry before and this one is excellent - and VERY easy. It's very accepting of almost any veggie you'd like to add - my faves are thin carrot strips, fresh green beans, and even potatoes. Also a great use of a rotisserie chicken from the store. Easy to make more or less hot and/or spicy according to your family's preferences (I've changed via amounts and types of spices: more or less curry, cumin including toasted cumin seeds, hot pepper flakes, etc). And since I have most of these things in my cupboards all the time anyway - voila! I did use milk tho cause no 1/2-1/2 in the fridge. My favorite part of curry is the toppings so I always have some combination of the following: toasted coconut, sliced green onions, banana slices, toasted almond slivers (my favorite), raisins or currents, chutney, or chopped peanuts. My family loves this stuff!!! EDIT: used coconut milk tonight - makes a really delicious and creamy sauce.  -  15 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was awesome!! I didn't have half and half so I used milk, sure the other would have been better but it still turned out great. My daughter is a big Curry fan and she loved it also. I give this recipe five stars.  -  11 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was really excited to try this dish, but I didn't love it as much as I had hoped. I love curry, but this dish seemed a little one dimensional to me - no real depth of flavor other than curry powder. I did add a few more spices in (garam masala, cumin) but the dish still felt like it was missing something. This was good, but I will probably not make it again as there are many other curry dishes I enjoy more.  -  10 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
