Really liked the basic combination, except that I also found it on the bland side, despite adding around double the curry powder. Next time I'll try quadruple, but there'll definitely be a next time. (My dinner companion had some sort of Mexican hot sauce, and a couple drops of that made it really good.)

A very filling and easy to make dish, but I found it bland. I will make it again but will add more heat.

Easy to make, quite good. the tomatoes add an unexpected sweetness that works very well with the curry. Great with rice... Could add some other types of veggies or a bit more seasonings for more kick but overall a good meal.
