Top Review by Chef Whirlwind

I made it and followed all the directions almost exactly. Only I used half butter, half oil. I also fried the onions until browned it took about 20 minutes, but the flavor was so worth the extra cooking time. I had no idea what sweet curry powder was so I put in about 1/8 tsp each of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, garam masala, and nutmeg. I used full fat yogurt. And finally I used a 1lb package of thawed frozen spinach that I squeezed the water out of. It was delicious. It was more spinachy and less dippy but was totally delicious and plan on making it again and again.
