      This was a nice dish with a lot of flavours. I halved the recipe and it was enough for my husband and me with a small lunch portion the next day. The directions however, are a bit hard to follow. I cook desi food all the time but someone not used to this style of cooking might not understand whats going on. I'll try and right up what I did later when I have more time. Lovely dish though. and easy to make. I served it with a bit of greek style yogurt. yum yum.
