    Used different ingredients. This is another good recipe we've added to our rotation. I throw in red kidney or chickpeas and serve it over rice to make it a one dish, complete-protein main meal. I also use fresh ginger, increase the spices and add more liquid (sometimes yoghurt).  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. We really like this recipe, but prefer it a bit more saucy - so I double the amount of spices then add 200ml or more of water at the end (when adding the cooked vegetables). Then, serve over rice.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. The dish has a good taste but I added extra spices and water so It would be saucy to serve over rice. Next time I will also add chickpeas or some other beans.  -  29 Sep 2008
