    Extremely flavorful! Absolutely wonderful! It isn't really that soupy which was fine for me as I paired it with some box coconut rice. In addition I had some garlic naan as an extra. O.m.g. It was delicious! I did 1 and 1/2 curry powder and a bit more pepper flakes b/c I like it hot. Was a wonderful Indian dish! Will certainly make again. :)

    This dish is fabulous! There is so much flavor, and it is perfect on a cold day. Very easy to make and great left over. This is a keeper.
