Very tasty and easy to make. Another favorite of mine from cooking light. I generally use more curry powder and add jamaican hot sauce.

Bad, really bad. Way too much thyme, it's all you can taste. Will not make again and will trash what is on the stove, which is almost all of it. Bitter disappointment! What a waste:(

We really like this recipe and have made it several times. By adding more spice and heat, I think it is a 5 star dish. We typically double or triple the curry powder, and use more allspice, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. We also omit the capers because DH doesnt like them in this dish. Thank you for posting this keeper.

Delicious! A really tasty meal that's great for a family on a busy weeknight. I made mine with quorn veggie "chicken" pieces and it was very good.
