This dish is a little spicy, a little sweet and very delicious. I like to garnish it with some flaked coconut and chopped peanuts. Rice is the perfect side dish to enjoy with the coconut sauce.

My family didn't particularly care for this dish, but I have to think it's because we are low sodium eaters, and crave ALOT of spice to compensate for flavor. I'm still going to try it again, jazzing it up with the things we are used to. Thank you for sharing!

This was delicious and is very adaptable to changes in spices, etc. Was a bit hit with my family last night and is now an addition to our menu.
