Another wonderful Indian recipe from the Punjab region of India, courtesy of dear family friends. The spiciness of this recipe can be adjusted by adding/subtracting the amount of jalapeno peppers and the cayenne pepper. This dish as posted is a medium "heat".

This is a wonderful recipe. I used cauliflower and added the "optional" potatoes which I boiled for 30 mins first. I can't wait to try this recipe with the zucchini version. I served it with steamed brown rice and DH really loved it too. Thanks Deb!
