This was wonderful! I made this for dinner yestrday and it went very well at home. I did use a cup of defrosted greenpeas, 1/4 tsp. of red chilli powder, 1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder and a few strands of saffron as well. We loved this with plain yogurt on the side. Thanks so much for a good and simple recipe!
