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.

Great winter dish! I was skeptical but then I made it and I will totally make it again. It has great flavor and texture.
