This recipe has lots of pluses. The flavor is good if you like African cuisine (which we do). I am lowering my rating for a few reasons other than flavor. I ended up using almost twice the amount of cooking liquid (prepared stove top), I felt the spinach would have been more appetizing in appearence added close to the end of the cooking time, and the amounts for us were far more than 4 servings. I made this to serve with Recipe #291700. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Was really easy to make and very flavourful. People at work commented on how good it smelled. However, I must have done something wrong because after 2 hours I was out of liquid and it started to stick to the pot. That didn't stop it from being really yummy. Thanks!

This recipe has at least 4 servings if not more. Easy to make and nutritious. The curry itself is quite mild.
