    The grown ups loved this but not the children. Missed out the fresh coriander because there was none in the shop.  -  01 Nov 2017


    sorry but made this tonight and I was very disappointed. the yoghurt curdled and the taste was very bland which surprised me with the amount of spices added.  -  09 Nov 2016


    Substituted a can of coconut milk for the yogurt. Cooked for three hours on low on the stove, outstanding –!  -  03 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
