This is a quick and easy dinner solution. This comes from another website. Update: After a number of reviews I have changed the ingredients list. When I made this, I too thought the cloves were strong but DH liked it so I posted. I have since changed the ingredient list and reduced the amount of cloves and nutmeg. Please feel free to adapt as necessary for preference. Thanks everyone for your input.

I agree with Chef Sunflower girl, the cloves (I used the smallest amount) did not blend well. If you use this recipe, I would recommend cutting out the cloves completely.
We didn't put in the cloves as we only had whole ones and I didn't have time to grind them. I love anything with coconut so this was a good recipe for me, and it was very quick!
This dish did not work out for our family. It smelled wonderful while cooking but the blend of flavors were not our preference.
