Altered ingredient amounts. The spice ratios in this recipe are no good. The amount of turmeric and garam masala struck me as excessive but I made the recipe as stated anyway. The result was flavourful, to be sure, but the flavours were not balanced correctly. I ate it, nonetheless, and doused it with yoghurt to mask the strong turmeric taste. I guess you could make this with 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric & garam masala and it MIGHT be OK, but there are so many other great Indian/Pakistani dishes out there that I wouldn't bother. - 29 Sep 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. Yum! This was great and it smells wonderful cooking. I didn't have any peas so I left them out and it was still great. Will definatley make this again and again. - 29 Sep 2008


This is outrageously good. Like eating at my favourite restaurant, only a lot cheaper. - 29 Sep 2008
