Will make this again - even without the garam masala (and forgetting to put in the coriander at the end), it was delicious.

A lovely recipe. I added some cloves and the seeds of a green cardamom, but used only half a teaspoon of turmeric. We had it with chapatis and homemade lemon pickle, and had a very enjoyable meal.

This was really tasty, however I altered it quite a bit. I added 1 tbsp of both ginger and garlic instead of 1 tsp, added peas, used half tinned tomatoes and some tomato paste like previous commenter, only added half the water, added 2 tsp of cardamon, and increased the other spices. Served with tumeric rice and it was delicious. Would be a little bland if I hadn't oomphed up the spices.
