Top Review by Dr. Jenny

I really enjoyed this curry recipe for dinner tonight. Like the other reviewers, I thought it had the right amount of heat and flavor. I needed to use up tomatoes from the garden, so I used 14 oz of fresh tomatoes which worked out great. Also, I only had 1 can of red kidney beans so I used a can of white kidney beans (cannellini) as the other can. While this may have affected presentation (which didn't matter as I was the only one eating), it did not affect the taste. I served over basmati rice. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. Thanks!
