This is a nice mild curry. All the flavors mixed in well together. I followed the directions on the package for the basmati rice, as it was slightly different. Also, I used chicken broth. For the potatoes, all I had was 2 red potatoes, and 1 sweet potato, so I used that, peeled and cut into a 1/2 inch dice. The same with the squash. This was very nice for lunch the next day. Next time I may add a chopped apple. Thank you Susan.
