I made this dish again this week for a son who was visiting from out of town. Still delicious, but beware if you're planning to increase the amount of curry powder you use in your recipe; all curry powders are not the same. I used the same amount this time but a different brand, and the curry was much stronger. Enjoy! Original Review: I've tried several recipes from this site, but this is the first one I liked well enough to review. It was wonderful from start to finish. From the moment the oil and curry began to heat, my husband and son began pestering me about when it would be ready. The aroma alone drove them crazy. And when the meal was over, my son declared it was so good, he could eat till he made himself sick. My husband seconded that opinion. I made a few small changes, some on purpose, some by accident. First I doubled everything but the tomato sauce so i would have leftovers. Also, I added about 1/2 tsp each of paprika and ground red pepper for a little spicy kick. I simmered it, uncovered, over a low heat for about 2 hours and it thickened perfectly. And just before it finished cooking, I added 1/2 cup shredded coconut. Those are things I did on purpose. I accidently tripled, rather than doubled, the curry powder (misread the recipe - should have worn my glasses), but it didn't hurt a thing. There were no complaints of blandness!
It was so easy and my family loved it. The vote was unanimous, this one will make a return appearance at our table.
