Loved this Curry! The dried apricots add much to this dish, loved the crunch of the slivered almonds. Only had half a lemon which worked well for me, other than that I made as posted and wouldn't change a thing. This is a deliciously different, looks elegant served on a white platter, this one is sure to please weekend company!

Pretty good I subbed cranberries instead of dried apricot I think it would have been better if I used dried apricots, will make it again as stated
