What a lovely and rich curry! I forgot to buy the lemon so I added a few drops of lemon extract instead - not ideal, I know, but at least I got a bit of lemon kick too. I did add more salt and chopped plenty of cilantro on top. Yum! Thank you for sharing!
This was delicious! A perfect curry recipe! My youngest DD and DH loved it! I used snow peas and tossed in some carrot sticks and water chestnuts I had in the fridge. I'm sure I'll be making this often as my family is always interested in new curry recipes. Thanks!
great blend of spices, of coarse I added in crushed chili flakes, used yellow on and added fresh garlic, I sauteed both in oil with red bell pepper, I omitted the cilanto, we enjoyed the, thanks Shar!
