    This was very good. I didn't have almonds and loved the pop of flavor with the lemon! - 12/16/10

    Very Good
    Enjoyed this but did cut down spices to half & added onion. Served it over rice &, surprisingly, my husband liked it too even though he's a meat & potatoes guy. - 9/17/13

    I thought this was great. Based on a comment about the spice, I reduced the curry and turmeric by half. Leftovers will be served over grilled eggplant. Next time, I might add a chopped onion while browning the meat... and this dish definitely deserves a next time. - 10/3/12

    Didn't have the spices, so substituted chili powder and cumin, and yum! Didn't need the yogurt, nor side salad & riceeither - 5/10/11
