We made this curry last night for dinner and loved it. It was really easy to make and very flavorful. We'll have this again. Thanks!

I made this for my family while visiting and everyone loved it. Pretty easy to make and good for when you want Indian food but don't have an extensive spice collection.

I made this because I had some leftover coconut milk and yogurt to use up. Halfway through I discovered both had gone bad. I ended up using some low fat sour cream instead and it was fantastic. I don't like to rate recipes unless I follow them exactly, but the spice ratio is excellent and I just wanted to rate it anyways!
