My husband kinda looked at me funny when I began preparing this recipe, but one taste and he was hooked! This was so good and got highest raves from the whole family. I never would have thought of combining these particular ingredients, but they all blended together beautifully. The flavor was fantastic! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Excellent! I doubled the recipe, used olive oil, regular curry powder and more lemon juice. All of my friends liked it. Its a keeper! Unique Taste! Thanks Kuntryqtpi!
