Delicious and dead easy to make. I gave samples to three people at work and they each wanted the recipe, which is always a good sign. I made the recipe exactly as written (with all optional spices), and it's hot, but not annoyingly so to my palate. I think the heat is properly used to provide structure and depth of flavor to the dish, though more heat-sensitive palates may wish to moderate the cayenne and the heat of the tomatoes/chilies. Very highly recommended.

If you love really flavorful, hot food, this is the recipe for you. Between the heat of the cayenne and the intensity of the curry and cardamom, you'll have one, really good and spicy dish. Make sure to serve with plenty of rice.
