    Was very disappointed with this recipe. Smelled lovely whilst cooking but the taste wasn't there. Thought it was very bland.  -  14 Jan 2016


    This was wonderful! Note that it took about 30 minutes to prepare. I added 2 large peeled and sliced russet potatoes. I used 1/2 of a large onion, cut in 'rings,' instead of chopping the onions, and a smaller cut of meat; I cut the cayenne pepper down to 1/8 tsp. to make it less spicy. I would recommend mixing the spices with the tomato mixture; otherwise, they 'bake' on the top, and don't get mixed in. I added 1/2 tsp. salt before cooking, then another 1/2 tsp. after. Will definitely make again! Thanks for the recipe!  -  10 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I came home expecting my house to smell wonderful with this combination of spices, but instead of a wonderful smell, I was greeted by this pungent stench. Even though the smell was unappetizing, I decided to taste it anyway hoping that it tasted better than it smelled (like corned beef and cabbage tastes better than it smells), but unfortuantely for me, it tasted exactly like it smelled. I wasted money on this recipe because I had to throw it away since no one in my house would touch it. It even took me three days to get rid of the smell from the house. I am a lover of curry, but this recipe is definitely not for me. It should not even get a 1 star, but that was as low as I could rate it.  -  28 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
