Excellent, but I prefer using all brown sugar. Strange, but in this recipe the curry tastes more like nutmeg than curry. I also like to add a few toasted pecans on top of this dish just before serving. Judy

I was leary becuase I am not a curry fan, but I was trying this for my husband who is. I was so surprised! It smelled good while it cooked and the sweetness really brings out the different flavors in the curry, it was really good. I might take this to my mom's for Thanksgiving!

Fixed this for breakfast brunch and even the men were complimentary. Added a little cinnamon & nutmeg and would be good with brandy. A definate keeper.

Very different, but good! I would recommend a little more brown sugar. I had to put a little more on when eating the leftovers. But, I DID eat the left-overs, which I am not good at! :-)
