I made this reci

I made this recipe tonight and followed the recipe exactly. It was very good but we're not fans of curry so the next time I will leave that out. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

Without a doubt

Without a doubt this is a 5 star recipe. Try the mixture inside of puff pastry for a delicious and different pot pie recipe, or make pocket pies. Paula, you are the best, I don't care what they may say about your style of cooking or the amount of fat and calories that is in them. I just love you and every recipe of yours is filled with delightful flavor and deliciousness. If I had to eat diet food the rest of my life, I would prefer to go ahead and die. People need to learn how to control the amount of what they eat and quit blaming their obesity on others.

I am definitely

I am definitely going to make this within the next couple of days and will submit another comment! Sounds yummy! It's funny that others comment about this recipe but they change it up so they aren't making this exact recipe. Why bother to comment when you aren't using the same ingredients?!
