Very good curry, CarolAnn! I did have to omit sprouts and waterchestnuts, since we dont really like them, and unfortunately was out of mushrooms. I kept the curry fairly mild, and I allowed the chicken and vegetables, with the exception of the broccoli, to simmer in the sauce for that bit longer, giving us wonderfully soft and tasty chicken. Dh doesnt like his carrots crunchy, but I did keep the broccoli crisp and colourful! A very flavoursome and aromatic curry that doesnt take too long, served over steamed rice. Thanks for a lovely recipe, which was made for PAC Fall 2012

I'm lucky in that my husband will eat just about anything I put in front of him, even those labeled as "fails". Even then, he will choke it down without to much grumbling. After living on Kaua'i for nearly 14 years, I discovered a lot of Pacific Rim recipes and enjoy learning any style cuisine. These days I am learning more and more about the Paleo and Primal way of eating and am convinced that the 35+ years of "everything low fat" and the insane amounts of processed foods play a huge part of why people in these United States are so sick and overweight. Anyway, I'll not get on my "low fat fallacy" soap box. So every morning I have my bullet proof coffee complete with butter, coconut oil, heavy whipping cream (HWC) and some Himalayan salt. Drink my ketones (Keto//OS www.carolannneill.shopketo.com) and enjoy life!
