Hmm...disappointing. I agree with a previous reviewer, it lacks depth. I picked this recipe specifically because I've just moved overseas, and my household goods are still en route, so I'm missing my well-stocked spice cabinet. Not wanting to buy too much in the way of spices, this seemed to fit the bill...besides the great reviews. I'll wait till my stuff gets here, so I can make a proper curry.
We loved this recipe. I used a small can of diced tomatoes since they were out of season and added a fresh squeezed lime at the end (instead of cilantro).
Delicious. We sauteed the onion, ginger and garlic in a TBSP of oil, then added the curry to bring out the flavor. We also used 1 full can of light coconut milk, 1/2 head of cauliflower, an extra tsp of mild curry, 1 cup drained, diced tomatoes and more spinach. The point is, you can work with this recipe to suit your own taste and pantry. It was excellent. It will be a keeper recipe.
Loved this recipe. Omitted the tomatoes because my husband is allergic but it still turned out fantastic & full of flavour. Used regular coconut milk instead of light, used chicken broth instead of veggie broth. Added extra baby spinach. Love the sweet potatoe & cinnamon flavours. Will definitely make this again.
To get any depth of flavor in this you must heat the oil and add the spices and cook to make the flavors pop. Then add the coconut milk. You may even want to use more spices as many times American cooks do not use the freshest spices available and they loose their aromatic qualities quickly sitting in a pantry for months.
Great recipe--my tweaks--I used a whole can of regular coconut milk, not the 1 cup. I also used a can of diced tomatoes, not drained--wanted sauce! I didn't have a hot curry,so I used the sweet curry I have, and it was yummy. Also, added the tomatoes and beans before the greens, let it simmer for a while before adding the greens at the end. Personally, I think canned beans need more than a 5-minute re-heat. This will be in my regular rotation for sure!
I thought this recipe was really delicious. For reference, the head of cauliflower I had weighed 3 lbs before cutting up into florets; the florets weighed 2 lbs. The recipe calls for 12 oz of cauliflower, which is just over 1/3 of the whole head of cauliflower. I thought the herbs and spices were nicely balanced with this amount of cauliflower. This reheats very nicely. I will make this again!
Was disappointed. Thought this would be an interesting non-meat meal with complex flavors, but it just seemed superficial. Flavors didn't meld well. A depth was missing. Made the recipe as stated, but w/o chickpeas. Maybe others who use the chickpeas will have different results.
