"What an outstanding recipe! I didn't have any half-and-half on hand, so I substituted coconut/almond milk. I also reduced the amount of curry to suit our tastes. I'll definitely be making this recipe again!"

"This was really good, however I did reduce the curry powder in half and that was plenty of flavor for us"

"This was really good! My gluten-free husband also loved it. I, however, was able to eat it with some nice crusty bread! Lucky me! This is definitely a keeper recipe for us."

"Really good thick, rich and creamy. We added a large pinch of crushed red chilli and Pancetta and they worked well."
