Reviews for Butternut Coconut Curry
"This is delicious AND easy - I add golden raisins and it gives an extra flavor!"
"It's an east way to cook and delicious?"
"This is quite tasty and easy to make. However, I added more spice. I also felt it needed something extra, like chickpeas? or naan? I'm not sure what it was but something was definitely missing."
