"This recipe made for a quick, nutritious and inexpensive Wednesday night supper. The curry wasn't overpowering ... as a matter of fact, all the flavours blended nicely together with no one ingredient overpowering the next. We are used to having this type of recipe swimming in a sauce so it took a few spoonsful to get used to the absence of liquid but by the time we cleaned our first bowl, we were ready for seconds and were grateful for leftovers."
