      I love this recipe. I made it at least several times. It's easy and very tasty. If you see the youtube video of it, it's even easier: I serve it with jasmine rice, raita, and naan.

      While ATK usually has great recipes this one was simply average, nothing great or bad just average. As always I follow the recipe exactly, then make slight adjustments. However, we were just not impressed.
