Quick & Yummy!

Top Review by Karen Elizabeth

Indeed, very yummy. I used my favourite Roasted Garam Masala, and also didn't add as much as directed, since DH doesn't enjoy very spicy curry. However, I think I could safely up it a bit next time, this was a very smooth and flavourful curry and we both very much enjoyed it.
I served it over basmati rice, to which I had added a generous sprinkle of garlic powder. The lemon and mint are a good touch. Yum, excellent meal, quickly prepared, thank you, Karen!
