    Fairly easy to make and super flavorful! My fiance is not big on spice so I used a milder chile powder and it came out amazing. Definitely on my dinner rotation now.

    Really lovely. Only used 2/3 of coconut milk and 100mls stock and sauce was right consistency. John

    I thought the amount of spice would be too much...but we followed the recipe exactly and it turned out absolutely amazing! Best home made curry mix is spices we have ever found.

    Excellent. Just the right amount of spice. I did add a red pepper, a zucchini and spinach (at the end).

    Love it! Made it twice already. Might add a vegetable next time for some variety. Didn’t need to do the pre-work with the onions and cooking the chicken ahead of time for it to be delicious. Works just as well to throw everything in the crockpot (even whole chicken breasts) and let it soak in and fall apart.

    Sooooo Yummy! Made it as directed and added chick peas.

    Used 6 chicken thighs instead of 3 beasts, added 3 medium red potatoes, 1 chopped red bell, 1 chopped head of cauliflower, 1 can chickpeas, 2 handfuls baby spinach, and QUADRUPLED all of the spices. Combined all at once in Crock-Pot and cooked on low for 8 hours. After all of this, very tasty.

    Considering the amount of spice that goes into this, it has an astonishingly bland flavor. Maybe red pepper would help fill it out, but I'm too unimpressed with it to give it a second chance.

    Turned out lovely. I did not use the slow-cooking technique, instead I used the normal way. The taste was great, added some chickpeas and roasted fresh paprika to get more body. Also added 2 fresh Spanish red peppers instead of the chili powder.
