The cilantro flavor made a big difference. If you can't stand cilantro, maybe add some lemon juice or something. I did improvise a bit with the spices, as I didn't have the mustard seeds or ajmoh seeds. I chose this recipe because the other Indian cauliflower and potato recipes called for onions, and I didn't have any. I really like onions, though, and I think I would have liked an onion flavor here. I thought the peas might add a nice green color, but they turned mushy and gray after cooking for 20 minutes. I give this 4 stars rather than 5 for the mushy peas. I ate this with whole wheat tortillas because I was too lazy to make chappatis.
