"Crossed this recipe with another similar from TOH (added a couple of chopped up potatoes.) Cooked it for 5 hours on low.

I'm also a veteran of Ethiopian cooking, so I added a few sprinkles of Berbere powder to it all, along with using a whole 13.5 oz can of coconut milk. Added a whole packet (1 tsp) of chicken bullion powder to that when I whisked the whole thing together.
Haven't eaten any yet, but it smells wonderful!"

"I made tonight exactly as written. We love curry and were excited to make this after seeing it published recently. Smelled fantastic while simmering in the crock pot. But my husband and I agreed, something was missing. It didn't balance quite right...needed maybe some brown sugar or additional spices. (We did add the nuts and lime wedges as mentioned in the optional section.)"
