These are wonderful, with just the right amount of spice. I did one thing differently, however. I let the sauce boil down so it was more like a gravy. The directions do not say to do this and, if you keep the dish covered, it won't happen because the cover will keep the moisture in the pan. So I removed the cover to let the sauce boil down to the thickness I wanted. We loved this recipe and definitely will make it again. Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic, we loved this recipe, i didnt add any water and used mango chutney, also doubled up on the cayenne. This was so good, im sure it would be great with chicken or fish also.

Very easy to make and one of the kids even asked for more! Substituted Mango Pepper Jelly for the chutney (excellent) and served over Grande CousCous cooked with the rest of the leftover coconut milk. Will make this again!
