    I thought the amount of tomato sauce was alright, I've only tried curry a few other times. However, I agree this was missing something spice-wise. I added quite a bit of extra chili powder, some crushed red pepper flakes, and black pepper to adjust the heat.

    Came out well overall. I would suggest halving the tomato, and 50 % more coconut milk.

    Turned out well. I simmered the tomato sauce a little longer than called for and it opened up the spices a little more. Not too much tomoto, like others have stated. I subbed chili powder for garam marsala, definitely added to the complexity of spices. Next time, im going to add the chile peppers in just after the onions for a deeper spice.

    I'm not much into shrimp but my husband wanted me to make it for him. he ate it all so I'm assuming it was a winner for him 😂.

    I bloomed the spices in the oil and let the sauce simmer for an hour. Next time I will try adding some garam masala. I'm not giving up on this recipe yet.

    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!
