    Traditionally, adding the spices and ginger & garlic after cooking onion (saute approx 1-2 minutes) and before adding tomatoes makes for better flavor. I used half the tomato and twice the cocnut milk. It was tasty. Thanks! - 5/31/11

    Very yummy dish. I left out the chilli and was surprised by how much my four year old loved it. - 11/11/08

    This is fantastic! I modified it to add a whole can of light coconut milk and 2 (14.5 oz) cans of chickpeas (rather than having half-cans leftover) and it was fabulous: mild and delicious. And the house smelled amazing! Excellent! - 11/7/07

    Very healthy and yummy. I reduced the amt. of oil and added more tomatoes and chick peas. It didn't have enough punch, so I added some curry. Still a bit bland, but I realize now it's b/c I added more ingredients w/o adding more spices. My house smelled so exotic! - 9/3/07
