I loved this! I served it as a soup, and because it is quite rich in flavor, I think I would enjoy it more over rice. Also, my daughter (age 11) found it a bit too spicy. So if you're serving it to kids or someone who prefers milder food, you might try just one Tbsp of curry, and go from there. - 10/26/09
