I can't believe how good this was and how easy to have a delish curry dish in such a short time. I took out too much meat (shrimp and crab flavoured pollock) so doubled the recipe. Used a can each of Campbell's condensed potato soup and cream of chicken, tripled the curry as I love curry, served mine over brown basmati rice and my boys over farfalle pasta, added some frozen sweet peas for veg & colour contrast. Wonderful, simple meal for a busy night or at the end of a tiring day. Will definitely be including this on our regular menu rotation. Thanks Sunny for posting this wonderful recipe! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring 2011 :)

I love this shrimp curry recipe. I used 1 can of cheddar cheese soup, one can of cream of shrimp, 1 can of cream of chicken and thined it with coconut milk..I added extra curry powder for my personal taste, (lots) added 3 cans of drained mushroom bits and pieces, green onions and 3 jars drained red pimentos bits. Severed over saffron rice wth raisins, peanuts, coconut, and mango chutney to fav the curry if my guest desired

This is the Quick Curry Recipe I was hopping to find when I joined
Any frozen or chopped vegetables go really well.
I also added some milk to get a runnier sauce.
