    Added more spice than suggested also added garam masala and used coconut cream. Turned out flavourful this way

    this was terrific. we have tried so many recipes to get something close to what we have in restaurants, only to be disappointed. This recipe was superb and exceeded our expectations as well as anything we have had in any restaurant! the only change we might make would be to add more heat. we served it over roasted sweet potatos.

    This is delicious! I have glazed the onions with white wine, and the result turned out really good!! Served with rice on the side. Everyone loved it, thanks!

    delicious. i didn't have coconut cream so I added some corn starch to the milk to thicken the sauce. it still turned out awesome. my three year old had three servings. I'm definitely adding this recipe to my regular rotation.

    It is really good and I will definitely make it again. Next time I will use more chili’s as I like it spicy and the small chilis I used did not add any heat. Also be sure to go with less water not more. A keeper recipe for sure.

    Very good. Wish the ingredients list was on the actual recipe, as I had to go back and forth trying to figure out the ingredients... but it was well worth it.

    Excellent meal and not difficult to prepare. Exactly what we were hoping it would taste like! Didn't have curry leaves so just used more curry.

    Fantastic! We did not have curry leaves so I added bay leaves. Looking forward to making it again with curry leaves
