"I thought this recipe was just okay. My husband thought it was good. Not sure I will make again. I made again but substituted curry for the spices. Liked much more"

"How odd. We LOVED it! It had tons of flavor, and tasted like authentic Indian curry. Maybe you didn't add enough jalepenos or something? We'll definitely make this again."

"This was terrible! It had no flavor. The apples did not go well with this dish."
