"Will definitely make this again. My husband and I loved it. I increased the curry to 2 tsp, because we are curry hounds! We served it over brown rice - very tasty. It does make a bit of sauce but when put over the rice, it's perfect. Very easy to make - took longer to peel the shrimp than it did to cook it all up!"

"This dish is delicious. I have made it several times per my children's request. I just used the frozen raw shrimp (thawed) worked great!"

"Boo. There was way too much liquid. I let it thicken, but still...if you try it, try less milk and broth. You can always add more."
