this dish was very simple but didn't have the kick that i expect from a curry. i didn't have curry leaves which might be the problem but i did use 2 tsp of curry powder. i wound up adding hot sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce just trying to get some heat and a bit more flavor. sorry, but this didn't work for me
