It's impressive how badly I can screw up a recipe and yet still eat it.
The first thing I screwed up was to use Pine Nut flavored couscous rather than plain. The second thing I screwed up was adding the flavor packet in addition to everything in this recipe.
I cut back the salt thinking I was being smart. Turns out I didn't cut it back enough. Between the salt and the flavor packet it was ridiculous.
My curry powder is pretty old so I figured a little extra would help keep the flavor going. Turns out I was wrong. It was plenty potent. I only put maybe 1-1/4 tsp and man was it hot.
I ended up adding probably close to a half a cup of yogurt and a ton of raisins just to tone it down enough to eat. Then I had it over a bed of spinach. A large bed of spinach. So that I could choke it down and not call it a complete failure and have to find something else for dinner.
My card reader is not working and this recipe came out horribly so there are no pics.
Here is the original recipe. It was chosen by Ellyn of Recipe Collector and Taster. Sorry I bombed your recipe choice! I'm sure some of the other Barefoot Bloggers did better than I did.
