Eating Well has done it again. This is a fabulous dish. It is worth all the effort. I would save it for a weekend meal as it is labor intensive, but you will not be disappointed. The flavor is perfect. You need not change a thing! YUM.

My husband and I were totally impressed with this dish. Tantalizing aromas of curry and clove filled the house while cooking and we both could hardly wait to dig in. I can see how this dish would be even better after chilling overnight - the complexity of flavors would have even more time to marry! I couldn't find fresh or frozen cranberries so I substituted a chopped granny smith apple and it was awesome - I wouldn't change a thing. I highly recommend this recipe - it is a great recipe for a first time curry cook.

This was really good, and didn't take as long as I expected. The taste reminded me of autumn. I couldn't find fresh or frozen cranberries, so I used a few spoonfuls of whole berry cranberry sauce, which worked out okay. Served over basmati rice - yum! Can't wait to take the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

I was a little tentative about making this dish, since my son hadn't yet been introduced to curry. To my delight, he not only cleaned his plate, but asked for more. The grocery store had run out of both fresh and frozen cranberries, so I substituted frozen cherries. I served this with a brown rice pilaf, and an oriental-style salad (mandarin oranges on baby lettuce, with matchstick carrots and a few almond slivers. This was topped with a sesame ginger salad dressing that was thinned with orange juice (2 parts dressing to 1 part juice). Perfect meal.
