      This recipe turns out WAY better if you do it in a slow cooker - you don't lose all the moisture.

      Fairly easy to make, and the instructions were simple enough to follow. Although, the dish itself did taste good, it wasn't "all that" in my hubbie's and my opinion. I think the diced onions should hv be thinly sliced, and cooked longer, to make them sorta mix in w/the curry. Maybe I'll try it again, and second time round w/a few alterations, rate it higher also. :)
