    I altered this recipe a bit by adding some shrimp as well as some pureed tomatoes and spinach to make it a bit more liquid. It looked really good even before I did that though, it was just to experiment and use up what I had in my fridge. I would definitely make this again. - 5/24/09

  • I changed it a bit and it was good. Cut oil in half, added a can of diced tomatoes, a bag of spinach, extra curry powder, and some crushed red pepper. - 6/12/12
