"I cut the recipe in half and used petite diced tomatoes instead of crushed tomatoes. Delicious..but my daughter wanted it spicier. I thought it was good according to the recipe. I didn't have any turmeric but there is turmeric in the curry powder so it really isn't needed."

"After reviewing the recipe and comments, decided to use a little less than half of the cayenne pepper. Very tasty, just enough "hot", and extremely quick and easy."

"We didn't like this one. It was too spicy, and lacking something... There are other better curry recipes out there, and I wont be making this one again."
