    The spices taste “raw”, takes time to develop flavor! As experienced as I am, should have known better. Deleting!

    Tasted good will make it again with some tweaks. Definitely wasn’t spicy enough. I actually added spinach to it because I felt like it needed more greenery. I do agree with other comments about it missing a component.
    Didn’t love it. I made it with tofu instead of shrimp and I just felt that the curry was somehow “off”. It needed less tomato sauce and more spice .. but I’m still unsure which spice would have made it betters

    I thought this curry was delicious over jasmine rice. I can't wait to make it again. I followed the directions without changes, and chose to add the optional garnish of fresh cilantro and chili peppers. My husband says it his new favorite recipe. And it takes so little time to's a wonderful weeknight dinner. And for us, the spices, with the slightly sweet addition of the coconut milk, was the perfect combination of flavors.

    It was ok - felt like something was missing. My family didn’t eat it. We will find another curry recipe that has more sweetness. But very quick, good weeknight meal!

    It turned out okay. I didn’t have canned coconut milk had to use carton milk.

    Delicious! Savory yet quite different. I left out the shrimp & put it over quinoa pasta

    This was very easy to make. It was tasty but I felt like it was missing something,.. perhaps more crunch / texture? I served it with Jasmine rice and steamed veggies; overall, the family loved it.

    Turned out pretty good but I would add a little bit of sazon goya and lawrys seasoning for more flavor. And I didnt hey the light coconut milk but it still came out fine

    Flavor was a little odd

    Had potential to be really delicious if I hadn’t messed up by putting minced ginger instead of ground. Now all I can taste is the ginger and it’s pretty awful

    Served this with cilantro and lime white rice! This was a super easy dish to make! When I went to taste, I felt like it lacked in flavor a bit so I added 1/4 tsp of each of the spices and 1/4 cup of coconut. (Totaling 1 cup) Even then, I felt it was missing another ingredient but I couldn’t put my finger on it. This means I’ll have to give it another go and add that missing emph it needed! Probably because I left out the chilies, but my girlfriend isn’t a fan of spicy food. But this dish was still amazing, therefore it got 4 stars. My girlfriend LOVED it and the rice made it a good combo!

    My boyfriend and I threw this together extremely quickly. It was delicious for a 10 minute meal but the flavors really would have shined had we let it simmer for longer than the recipe stated. Overall, an absolutely delicious, quick, filling weeknight meal

    Loved this, the spices were just right for us, not too little and not too much. Will make often. I think it lends itself to adding other veggies to the dish as well, like small diced cauliflower quickly stir fried, shredded carrots steamed, spinach or kale. I had mine over some spaghetti squash. My husband had rice.

    I used tomatoes chunks and a little bit of tomato sauce, add chickpeas. Instead of chili powder I used Periperi spice.
