Loved this, I did not put in yogurt as I did not have, but used more coconut milk Instead, never used bay leaf either, I added a tin off chopped tomatos and some cream, did not take away from the flavour, my daughter had some and she helped me eat the rest of mine, One word "Delish" and this will defo be on my menu more often. Well done. - 19 Feb 2015
