This was good. Just the way we like curry in our house, because it is not too spicy. I guess if you wanted it to be spicy you could add red pepper or jalepenos, but I liked the flavor of this recipe, personally. I did not have any ginger root on hand, so I just used about 1 tsp. ground ginger. I also did not have any grated coconut, so I just left that out. I wanted to throw in a handful of frozen peas toward the end but it turns out I was out of that as well. (Time to go to the store!) Even my picky 9-year-old liked this.
