  1. This was really nice. Very easy to cook and very tasty. Family loved this dish. I did add turmeric (real not powder) for health reasons.

  2. I made this last night and left the chilli out because of the kids. I think leaving them out made it really bland but after adding 1 teaspoon keens curry powder and some sugar for sweetness it was delicious and I’ll make it again this way

  3. Made this last night amazing flavours. I used chopped chicken fillets for ease everything else as recipe. Will definitely make again

  4. I have cooked this delicious recipe twice now and it is a huge hit. The flavours are perfect. I will just keep doing it, I love using fresh garlic, ginger ect rather than powder. The grand children are asking for this recipe now and it is so easy to prepare. Thank you Paulene.
