This was sooo good - just the right amount of spice and heat. We had this for brunch: there were just two of us but we polished the whole thing off in no time! Thank you for sharing, will definitely make again!

I made this last night for dinner, and it came out very well. We ate it with parathas, and it tasted so good. I will definitely make this again. Plus, it is very easy and quick to make.
