A very tasty slaw! But you must like curry flavor or you will be disappointed. I made 1/2 a recipe and I cut the cayenne to 1/4 tsp. Also added just a bit of carrot and green pepper. The peanuts add a great deal to this slaw and I think a few more would make it even better.

I did not really like it. It was a little flat and too much curry. I added a lttle sugar and it helped some. I do not think I would make it again.

Great recipe! We used a bag of coleslaw mix instead of the cabbage, green onions, and peas. Turned out quite good.

Very good, quick & easy. I just used a bag of coleslaw mix (red & green cabbage + carrots) as well as the frozen peas, green onions & peanuts. My husband even had seconds (and he is not a coleslaw fan!) If you like asian flavors of curry & ginger I think you will enjoy this.

I recently made this for a pot luck dinner and it was a hit. This was a great recipe! However, I did make some changes. Instead of using peanuts, I used curry cashews, crushed then, I added some chopped apples (leave the skin on for color and extra fiber). It was a hit! I highly recommend this recipe. Yes, don't try it if you are not a fan of curry.

If you like curry flavor you will really like this recipe. I used yogurt instead of sour cream to lessen the calories a bit, and used a mix of both dry and honey roasted peanuts for a little spicy/sweet combination. I also recommend drastically reducing the amount of cayenne unless you like things REALLY spicy. I highly recommend this as a side dish to jerk chicken.

Used this basic recipe but changed and added a few things. Nonfat plain yogurt instesd of sour cream, pine nuts instead of peanuts and added red grapes & broccoli. Also used hot curry along with the other spices. Turned out great!

The taste of the dressing is great! I had to omit the green onions and the peas tonight, so subbed with carrots. The coleslaw went from good to great with the addition of the peanuts!
