      I skimped a bit on the coconut milk (used most of it the other night in pina coladas), but the recipe came out delightful. My kids like food a bit bland, so I added more pepper to my own plate. I served this on fresh basmati rice and it was great. Thanks!

      Sorry Dale! this just didn't cut it. It was very bland, not a lot of taste. I did cut the recipe in half, but I don't think that made any difference. It was edible, it just didn't have much taste. I think the coconut milk overpowered everything else. Perhaps a half a can was too much, there was an awful lot of sauce. Another time I would add more seasoning, herbs or something and cut the sauce in half again.
