A very nice curry. Must admit that I cheated and added a bag (11/2lb) of frozen vegetables instead of cutting and slicing. The vegetables were: mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, green beans, bell peppers. I did add the fresh onion. It seemed (as the previous reviewer also mentioned) a bit watery but when mixed with rice it was OK. The only thing I would alter is to add just a little less cayenne pepper and maybe add a garlic or two. Thanks for posting.
This was my first time cooking with coconut milk! I love curries but haven't really made a homemade one till this one. The spicyness was awesome and all the veggies made it look quite pretty. The sauce however turned a bit watery for me. It was not as thick as I expected it to be. None the less this is a tasty curry recipe! Thanks NurseDi!
