    I made this for dinner last night and it was so yummy. I know I shouldn’t review a recipe unless I follow it to the “T” but it was a hit in my home. I decreased the onion to about 1/2 cup and decreased the spices by just a bit. It was so flavourful and quick to make. My 10yo daughter asked to take the leftovers in her lunch the next day at school. My husband says this is now one of his top 3 fav dinners, Successs!! I would recommend this as a quick week night dinner. I have forwarded this recipe to friend on Facebook and Pinterest.

    I have curry paste. Do I use the same amount as stated for powder? I have never used it before and don’t want it to be too spicy for the family.

      I would add a tablespoon at a time … Only because I am not sure. You can always add… It’s harder to take away…

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I’m not too keen on lots of spice so halved the spice measurements. It was delicious. Thanks so much for this recipe. Both my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
