This recipe was sent to me by a friend from Wales and she said she got it from the Herb Society. Its very spicy and healthy.

  3. Add the mustard, cumin, coriander seeds and cinnamon sticks.

Made this for dinner tonight alongside naan and lime coriander rice. It was very very good. I would however add some chopped chilli to the garlic/ginger paste next time for a little "heat". We all enjoyed it. Thanks
