    • This is such a great curry. I'm a bit bored of cooking the usual thai or Indian so found this. Very easy and delicious. My husband asked for me to cook it again so hence the second time in less than 2 weeks.

    • I just tried this tonight and it turned out really well considering I'm a relative novice to the kitchen. I found that the bottom of the pan had more flavour - and was pretty close to the chinese curry I was expecting ;)
