    Holy Cow!!! This was amazing! I am so happy to have found this recipe because it really is authentic tasting. I will probably increase the spice by 1/2 next time, because I want even more of that indian flavor. Thank you so much.  -  29 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really great and flavorful, easy peasy to make. Very runny, though. Next time I'll simmer longer and add some flour.  -  23 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
