My husband loved it, I put more coconut though. It reminded him of Africa.

You can take a third of the curry and blend it (peas and all) and add it back to the pot to thicken it.

I love this recipe and will be cooking it pronto! There used to a restaurant in Malindi, Kenya called the Palantine where I would go to eat and this was one of my favourite dishes on the menu. Thanks!
