This recipe was great but its WAY too much chilli powder. We adapted this to use 1 teaspoon chilli powder, 1 paprika and 1 cumin. We have this for dinner often - 07 Jun 2015


This was a delicious and super simple vegetarian dish. I will definitely be making this often to go in the freezer and for me to eat when the rest of the family has meat. Three teaspoons of chilli powder was WAY too much- my mouth was on fire, even with rice. I think also serving with potato could work. - 15 May 2014
