    I would have liked more depth in the flavors but overall this was a hit with the family. I added coriander powder and cayenne pepper powder. I also dissolved cornstarch and coconut milk powder in a little water and added that near the end to thicken the curry sauce.

    I like curry, went with 1.5 tbsp, should have done the 2-3.

    Loved it! I added some chili powder but even without it it was spicy enough.

    Delicious! I added 1/4 cup heavy cream and it gave it a richer taste. Great!

    It was edible. I’m still new dabbling in making Indian cuisine. I’ve made a couple dishes so far, but this was... underwhelming, to put it nicely. Not a lot of flavor at all and I even doubled the curry, plus added extra garlic and ginger

    It had a lot of flavor! Very authentic. My only suggestion would be is to use more curry😁

    It was a little plain. If I use this recipe again, I'll have to add some more spices.

    I love Indian Curry, and its a much lower calorie affair than Thai curry (which I also love). This recipe is perfect, I don't have access to an international food market so has to use the McCormick curry powder. Which is fine except it has a tendency to get a little bitter so I used sweet potatos in the curry to cut the bitterness. I needed to use up some baby bella mushrooms before they went bad, so those got added, and I also used chicken broth in place of water for the same reason as the mushrooms. We loved it, took no time to make and you can just add more water to the pan as the potatos soak up the liquid in cooking. Served it with a large handful of shredded spinach on top. Delicious!!

    Bland, tasteless and won't be made again in this house. Very disappointed!

    The instructions on this recipe are a little confusing, but overall the concept is good. Based on the reviews I went with 2 tbsp curry and added some cayenne pepper as well. Pretty good but needed the additional kick.

    a few smalls corrections needed in recipe. However, with use of chicken stock (Knorr) in the water I love this curry. I also added peas.

    I followed the idea of it but had to increase the spices alot. Added onion and garlic powder with some chicken boulion and cyanne pepper. I used powder clove, just a pinch. A a small spoon of sour cream.

    This was the WORST dish ever! Had no flavor - I doubled all the spices and added garlic and onion spice along with fresh. Tripled the curry. I wouldn’t waste your time making this.

    It was pretty good but I’ve had similar dishes I liked a lot more. I’ll try adding a few more spices next time, it was a bit bland.

    It was really good. The directions were vague in some aspects, but was able to work around that and still produce an awesome supper. The whole family loved it. I did add seeded jalapenos to the dish...and doubled the curry powder.
