    I don’t know how this is possible considering all the spices in it but it didn’t have much flavor for me. My husband on the other hand loved it. It was very quick and easy so I will definitely do this again but maybe with more ginger and garlic.

    Very good and very easy. Assemble ingredients beforehand. I used dried Tumeric and served over jasmine rice. Thanks for the quick week right dinner.

    This recipe is fantastic and I’m not a vegan. We are on Keto and lentils are kinda high in carbs, but I added chicken to this and cooked it in my croc pot after I sautéed the veggies I added. I didn’t have a can of crushed tomatoes so I substituted a can of tomato paste and I had a red curry paste instead of the Serrano peppers cause that is what I had. It is fantastic a tiny bit spicy but my kids will eat it. My husband and I will just add more red pepper flakes when we serve ourselves up a bowl. It is a perfect rainy day comfort food. I am making garlic naan for the kids to dip into this yumminess.

    This was amazing! Wow what a big hit with the family. Didn’t add cilantro, and had to use jalapeños instead of Serrano peppers because i couldn’t find them in my local grocery store. The levels of flavour in this dish is really impeccable and unique! Will become a regular staple in my repertoire for sure

    It is soooo yummy. I am not the biggest fan of cilantro so I just left it out and I did not have any almond butter so I used peanut butter and it is still amazing.

    Absolutely Delicious!!!!!!!!! This recipe is so good! it tastes just like restaurant quality curry! I had to make a double batch as my meal prep for work. I doubled everything except the coconut milk which i didn't have enough for a double batch but it turned out GREAT!! My mom and I loved it! I will definitely make again. They got more recipes too that I'm excited to cook and try! YUM YUM 😋

    We LOVED it! I slightly changed the recipe: replaces fresh turmeric with a tsp of powdered one, dropped peppers, cayenne pepper & lemon juice, and I added crushed one dried red pepper. It was fantastic! I had guests over and everyone asked for a second serving!
