When I saw this receipe, I was kind not sure if I wanted to try it. Well, I made for my Pastor's birthday party. He loves curry. It turn out that not only he liked, but lot other guest did. I made little more then the receipe asked for. I also, added more curry about 2-3 tbs. more and add also some caynne pepper. One thing for sure, is that need added enough salt for taste. I will made this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
