    This is delicious. But I added coconut milk to give it a kick. - 12/17/11

    Very Good
    Left spinach frozen so moisture could help keep meat from sticking. Wasn't sure where to add nutmeg, so sprinkled in near the end. Used fresh garlic and half the butter. It came out good but not overwhelming or exceptional. - 6/14/11

    Yummy! I had to add a little water to keep the meat from sticking, and I also added 1/2 cup half and half for a creamier texture. The flavoring is comparable to our favorite Indian restaurant. Thanks for sharing this recipe. - 3/24/11

    Very Good
    This was really easy, though it was my first time with frozen spinach - that bit was messy but I blame my own inexperience. Also, I used chicken because I couldn't find lamb. But it still worked. And, I expect we'll have it again. Thanks
