Top Review by Debbie R.

Excellent flavor and perfect timing on the vegetables in order to keep them al dente and not mushy. I did have to add about 3/4 cup more water, however, to keep the sauce from sticking. I would wonder if I had the heat too high, but the vegetables were perfectly al dente with the recipe's timing, so I don't know what the story might be. After the curry had been added, I started using a lid. I also added another tablespoon of butter because the local restaurant makes them very buttery and deleted the potatoes entirely and used an entire small head of cauliflower; halved the carrots. This is one of my two very absolute favorite ways to eat caulflower--makes it so painless. I wil definitely use this recipe again. ZWT7
