THIS IS THE BEST NEW RECIPE I'VE MADE IN A LONG, LONG TIME!!!! I TRY NEW RECIPES EVERY WEEK AND THIS IS ONE I WILL MAKE AGAIN AND AGAIN! IT HAS ALL THE NOTES I'M LOOKING FOR IN A DINNER/LUNCH MEAL; 1) easy to prepare. 2) few ingredients 3) easy to find ingredients 4) healthy & light 5) Fish & vegetable dish 6) Very complex, interesting flavors Changes I made or will make in the future: 1) DID NOT USE CURRY LEAVES. WHO HAS THE TIME TO GO SHOPPING AROUND FOR THESE?? 2) THE POTATOES TAKE MORE THAN 20 MINUTES TO COOK. IT TOOK ME A GOOD HOUR. NEXT TIME I'LL PAR BOIL THE POTATOES BEFORE ADDING TO THE CURRY COCONUT SAUCE. THANK YOU:))))
