This was OK but nothing special. With all the spices I had expected more taste but it was rather bland. The only change I made was to substitute the yogurt with soy-yogurt, this due to that I do not mix milk and meat. The poppy seeds look nice in the final curry but that's all there is to them, they gave nothing extra to the curry.
I am not at all overly negative, the curry is OK and maybe upping the amount of spices would help. Anyway, I'm pleased I tried it.
Thanks for posting.
Made as written, except subbed boneless thighs instead of breasts. With all of the different spices in this, I expected something with a little more kick. It tasted very good, just needed something more. I am thinking that cutting the amount of water added and putting in more coconut milk would help. Not sure why the poppy seeds are essential, but I couldn't tell they were there. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
Wow! This is one of my favorite curries. I love the spices mixture especially the flavor of the star anise in it and the rich coconut sauce.
I love curries and I like the variations of them.
I really can recommend this recipe!
