      ***I made this again last night using green chillies and white onions, and am upping my rating to a 5. I had the left-overs for lunch today and tried a bit before heating them, and it's also good cold. My original review follows.*** Easy to make, and it tastes great. I used butter which gave the dish a lovely creaminess, 2 hot red chillis, and was generous with the spices. Not having any fresh onions I substituted powdered onion, which could just have made the difference between 4 and 5 stars. I plan to make it again using "real" onions, and will update my rating if applicable.

      Now, this is a winner! I love the rich, subtle flavors. Only changes I made: I dialed down the heat (my husband is super-sensitive to hot peppers) and used lime juice in place of lemon. Served atop brown basmati rice, with a dollop of cooling cucumber raita on top, and warm grilled naan bread on the side, it's sooooo delicious. I shall make this often!
