We really enjoyed this! I loved having a good tasting curry that was cooked in the oven (no curry yellow to clean off of the stove). This was easy to prepare and had a nice balance of flavors. DH asked me to keep the recipe for the sauce. I wish I could give this 5 stars, but picky picky DD didn't like it, and it is listed as a kid-pleaser. The adults all thought it was great!
