This recipe deserves a whole sky "flooded" with stars! I made this for lunch this afternoon and everyone who had it says they want to have it for dinner too. I made it equivalent to 4 servings. I did use the tomato paste but the tomato slipped my sight. Generally, vegetable jalfrezi is a favourite with me, now my mom and brother say that this one's a favourite with them:) Thank you for the fabulous recipe. Will make it many many times!!
