We did like this ... I stuck to recipe, (was generous with the curry powder, a roasted garam masala, perhaps that made the difference). I do enjoy a creamy curry, for us this worked well. ssadly my photo is not a good reflection of how good this recipe was, but truly, I will make this again. Thank you Nancy, made and enjoyed for ZWT9, Hot Pink Panthers On The Prowl.
