    Great recipe! Marinated chicken for 3 hour. Added shrimp and a bit of ginger. Also, waited until the end to include red and green pepper. Delicious 😋!

    I added salt and pepper to the chicken while it was browning a bit. Also added small diced carrots. You can also add potato and broccoli to change it up. I served baby spinach with tamari ginger dressing, and brown jasmine rice. Even pickiest daughter liked it!

    Pretty good, but like the comments below, needed a little more flavor. Added xtra garlic and cracked the chili peppers open to spice it up. Also added extra cilantro and it came out pretty god

    Although it was a quick curry to make and tasted good, i found it to be of a watery consistency type of curry, wasnt so much as a thick curry as i was expecting. i made some coconut rice and popadoms to go with this.

    This was pretty good. It needed some more salt after adding the coconut milk to bump up the flavor, but it was pretty good still. I also made a sweet coconut rice to serve with it.

    Really nice, easy to make curry. I didnt need to buy anything outside of what i have in my pantry to make it which i appreciate in a dish. I added half a can of like coconut cream to make it creamier and added the rest to my rice (with a little sugar and salt) to make coconut rice

    There’s nothing particularly wrong with this recipe besides the fact that it is almost completely flavorless. It was easy to make but I am going to try this recipe again with my own addition of spices to see if I can make it more flavorful. Following this recipe I was disappointed with how bland the dish came out.

    This quick and easy curry turned out beautifully for me. I made it with light coconut milk, half mild curry powder and half hot curry paste (Patak's) and it was just right for me.

    This was really easy and delicious, the only thing was that the sauce was a little thin. I even simmered it longer than the directions in lieu of adding flour to thicken the sauce. Any suggestions on how to thicken the curry sauce?

    It turned out pretty good! To keep it Paleo friendly we excluded the rice and just ate the curry solo

    I shared this with my boyfriend, and he cooked it for us tonight. I added red curry paste. The coconut milk did separate when boiled, so it wasn'tas creamy as I'd hoped. Otherwise it was yummy (I added an extra dash of salt to my plate)
