    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This is an extremely flavourful curry. Vegetarians can use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Kids really like this too (with less pepper). Serve with basmati as a side to a more elaborate dinner, or alone, for a simple meal.

      We love this recipe and make it quite regularly. Instead of using butter or ghee I generally use 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, or margarine. I have substituted 2 teaspoons of garam masala for the black pepper and chili powder, and added a 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne. I too use 4 cups of water, and don't bother adding any flour. We prefer to omit the coconut and the added salt, but include the cashews. Thanks for posting such a delcious and healthy recipe!

      Delicious recipe! I really enjoyed this for dinner last night. I served with the basmati, but I think next time I would serve without. I used No Chicken Broth (vegetarian chicken broth substitute) and this worked fine, as well as the optional coconut and cashews. I did not change the spice combinations. I especially loved the broccoli in this dish. I would have this again. Thanks!

      I really like this broccoli is this which I was initially skeptical about. It wasn't quite as an intense flavor as I as hoping for but that might of been because of the broth I used. Regardless, enjoyed by both of us.
