"Thought this was a nice, different kind of meal for us. I had never added a fruit to a meat dish, so I was really surprised how much I liked it! I did double this because we have a family of four, and I used cippoline onions because there were no green onions at the store (weird). But the substitute worked absolutely fine. Was slightly spicy, but not too bad. I used the smaller measurement on the curry. Good and healthy and will definitely make again!"
