    Altered ingredient amounts. This is a fantastic recipe. I used half the Quorn and a 470g can of chickpeas (we like more beans). I also use canned tomatoes with green chillis in it to give it an extra kick. My life partner and I just love this. This is one of my new favourites.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Made it vegetarian. We love this recipe at our house! I've found that if I mix the ground spices together over the weekend or sometime when I'm waiting for something to finish in the kitchen and seal them in a zipper bag, this becomes less intimidating for week nights, since all I have to do is dump the mixture in at the right time. Makes life even easier.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Quorn is a great product, and this is a great recipe. I added a little sugar (tsp) like I do to most everything I cook. Yummy !!  -  29 Sep 2008
