Have so much confidence in this lady's recipes first time I replaced the chicken with pork sausage, mushrooms and yellow pepper. And I replaced the peanut butter with thick tomato puree (can't stand peanuts). Used Madras curry powder as we like it hot. It's great when the recipe fundamentals are right and I can play and get a delicious result. Thanks Baje - 11 Dec 2011


hello there, baje, can you tell me what kind of 'curry powder' do you use for this recipe? tx! charlie. - 25 Mar 2012


Delicious! My 13 yr old daughter made this and didn't want to add chillis or peanut butter. She wanted it really coconutty so added the whole tin of milk and it turned out just perfect - 12 Jan 2014
