    My husband's favorite curry I have tried making. So easy and in one pot too! I omit the tomatoes, jalapeños and chili paste, because he doesn't like those... But otherwise I make it exactly how the recipe says. It is so good! We make it about once or twice a month and I finally came to write my review.
