This recipe is from the cooking show Best Recipes Ever - which I love because the hostess Kary provides some really great and useful tips about cooking and ingredients as she goes along. Plus she has realy beautiful bowls and platters - I love bowls. Yummy dishes too. This dish is great with Indian Raita - Indian Raita (Cucumber Mix) and some naan

- Add peas and half of the cilantro. Simmer, covered, until steaming, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro.
Wonderful dish! Great flavor and very easy to make. Loved the addition of the cauliflower and raisins. The only change I made was to leave out the apples -- just our preference. Will definitely make this dish again. Made for Everyday is a Holiday, March, 2014.
WOW - this was just delicious! I used dark raisins and fresh parsley instead of golden raisins and cilantro, as that's what I had on hand. I did add the optional jalapeno and a medium-heat curry paste and thought it was the perfect amount of heat for this dish. Easy to make, colorful to look at, wonderful flavor - we loved everything about this....thanks for sharing a keeper!
