Very tasty recipe but way too spicy for myself and my son. My husband liked the spice, though. I liked how easy it was to put together. I will make it again either with milder curry powder or with less. Made for ZWT6 ZINGO for team SSaSSy.

We thoroughly enjoyed this dish! my changes were using an extra garlic clove, ketchup as suggested, only 1 TBLS of curry - still plenty spicy, and 2/3 of a Granny Smith apple (should have added it all). This went together easily and has a nice complex taste without being complex to make. I wasn't sure if I'd like the potato in it but found that it was good. I served this over jasmine rice. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT 6 ZINGO by one of the Unrulies Under the Influence.

Delicious. Made per recipe except made it vegan, so subbed margarine, left out chicken and put in edamame. Kids inhaled this. Will definitely do this again. Thanks for a great recipe.

Delicious. The instructions for the substitutions are very helpful. I suggest not adding the apple because it doesn't really make a world of difference. I actually prefer mine without it. I added a few more tablespoons of curry powder just because I like the spice. Do not add more water into this recipe unless the curry is starting to stick to the bottom as you're cooking. The best way to make a thick sauce is to use the chicken stock as specified in the instructions, while cooking with the lid CLOSED. If needed, THEN add water to prevent from sticking<br/><br/>***IMPORTANT TIP: after making the roux (after adding curry powder/tomatoes) I suggest using a shifter to dissolve the mix into the chicken stock. I find that this is the easiest way to thoroughly dissolve the roux. So basically, put your roux on the shifter, and dip the shifter into the stock, and mix the roux while it's in the shifter.

Very good. I omitted the potato, added spinach, mushroom, and ketchup.

This recipe is very forgiving. I added the onion all at once, used ketchup and omitted the potato because my DS doesn't like potatoes.We loved this recipe. I used the amount of curry called for and it was perfect for us. I expected a flavorful dish and it is. My son had 4 HELPINGS! I served with brown basmati rice. Thanks for a great recipe.

Lots of flavor in this delicious dish, but without the heat. Usually my kids can't stand curry but they had no problem eating this. The husband and I loved it, although I may add some heat to it next time. We will definitely make this again.

Wonderful! Substituted fresh tomatoes with ketchup as suggested and followed everything else. It's now a staple in our household. Thank you!

Wow! This was so good that GH will never want boxed curry again. Thank you for sharing this! Minor things I tweaked: used low-sodium chicken broth instead of stock, omitted yellow onions and instead minced several scallions with the garlic and ginger and used a granny smith apple. I left the curry powder at 2 tbsps since we like the Hot boxed variety and the heat level was just right. Yum!

I like Japanese Curry, who knew? I have never had a similar dish before. I was leery of using so much curry powder, but I did it anyway. Love the complexities of this dish. Made for ZWT #6 - ZINGO.
