Delicious one-pot meal.

Top Review by AmandaInOz

Delicious, simple and super quick, this is a perfect weeknight meal! I used ghee in place of the butter and cassia bark in place of the cinnamon stick. For the curry paste, I went with a hot madras. It was comforting and yummy. This made 6-8 servings for us. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
