These can be eaten not just with Indian food but can be served hot or cold with salad, buffets etc. They also freeze well. Not all the spices are essential, but the more the better

I liked this! I added a few bay leaves to make it more tangy, and If I make it again I think I'd use less oil, it was a bit too greasy.But lovely full flavour and made the kitchen smell wonderful whilst cooking! cheers!
