“My mum-in-law got this out of a newspaper (not sure which one) and I made it last night to rave reviews. It's truly delicious -- creamy with a distinctly different taste. It only takes a few minutes to prepare -- great for a week night. When she made it, she used it for an appetizer, but I served it as a main dish. Please note: I accidentally used 2 tablespoons of curry powder instead of the 2 teaspoons called for and we loved it! Admittedly, it is a very mild curry powder.”
