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

  • 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

  • I really liked this dish. I served it on basmati rice. I also added a small chopped onion and I diced the carrots instead of shredding them. I didn't use the yogurt and I forgot to put the almonds in. I'll add them to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. - 4/11/11

  • It is very strongly flavoured, no surprise to me given the amounts of turmeric and curry powder in the recipe, but, even prepared for it, I thought it was too strong. However, with rice and yogurt to kind of dilute it, it is pretty good. And turmeric is extremely good for you!
