      This turned out really good, not as spicy as I was expecting but it worked really well. When I first tried a spoonfull it tasted a bit bland, I got side tracked and came back an hour later... huge difference, def needs a little time to meld together. Looking forward to having this for lunch tomorrow.

      I'm sorry to say that mine turned out to be watery and bland, but maybe I'm more adventurous about my Indian Curry.

      What a lovely meal! I added chunks of skinned, boned chicken breast which I peppered and seared with the onion and garlic. Otherwise, I followed the recipe precisely, and it was delicious. A gorgeous color from the turmeric, a hint of sweetness from the red pepper--with the addition of the chicken and served over jasmine rice, a wonderful meal. Thank you, Evelyn.
