    It was so yummy delicious! The tips you gave made all the difference in the world! My sister is on a special diet and can only have so much of each ingredient. This recipe met her meal plan perfectly! Also, I had some turkey links and pita bread. We forewent the beans and used stuffed a whole grain pita bread with it and it was super yummy delicious, also!

    Very good, but a little dry. I might add some more liquid next time. My 1 year old daughter really enjoyed it!

    Loved this! Used half Garam Masala, half Muchi Curry. Served with the cabbage/cilantro/green onion slaw.

    To salty, maybe less curry power would make it better

    I replace the turkey by PTS, for vegan meal. Is supreme.

    Tasty but quite dry. I will made a coconut milk curry sauce to go with the leftovers. I'm not sure about the frying technique for the meat that you mentioned. It didn't seem to do much browning and then the pieces were stuck together. I do like the seasonings, tho and I always like adding spinach to my dishes!

    Easy recipe with lots of texture and flavor. I just wish it had some sort of sauce to accompany it.

    We actually liked this dish a lot. I made it with no oil and 99% fat free ground turkey. I added one red bell pepper, thinly sliced and then cut in thirds and fresh basil, mint and cilantro. I put in some extra dates - small dice on the dates. Served it over the cabbage mix the recipe author has on her site. Definitely will make again but will probably sub garam masala for some of the curry.

    Very dry but tasty. Next time I will try to May a sauce to go with it.

    With the dates it was very good. I'd recommend slicing up the dates so every bite has a few pieces. They really make the meal happen. Not very good without the dates
