Read reviews and decided to double all spices and coconut milk. Taste was pretty good maybe a bit spicy for some people. Probably will put recipe's recommended amount of curry and coconut milk next time as it was very soggy and a bit spicy. Added mushrooms and broccolini. Nice to have a dish with so many vegetables.
