    UPDATE: I made this for dinner tonight and it was great! I'm not a fan of spicey foods and this was just perfect...mild. My husband said he liked it so much he would eat left-overs for lunch the next day, now that say a LOT! Thank you, we'll make this dish often. - 7/15/09

    Sounds yummy, but I feel the portion size is a bit on the small side...no way I can eat only half a cup of curry. My excuse: I need the protein ;-) - 6/12/09

    You make a good point about the serving size. The only reason I made it into a 1/2 cup size was because when I measured it out I counted with a 1/2 cup spoon!! So I just input it that way into the calculator--a bit of a brain fart!! (I eat a full cup portion myself...)
