This is soooooo good! I cooked it a bit differently than called for but kept the ingredients the same with the exception of adding half a large onion and a small bell pepper. The sauce is so yummy. The combo of 5 spice powder, curry and coconut milk is just dreamy. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!
