wow this was so a wonderful meal. i had trouble finding garam masala and eventually found it at whole foods market. i doubled the recipe and should have gone easier with the chili powder but the family still loved it. I had some plain greek yogurt on the side to cut some of the heat. thanks again I will make this again.
