I am Indian & a vegetarian--this recipe rocks! It reminds me of the stuff I grew up with (I don't cook a lot of Indian dishes; ate it growing up but never learned how to cook it!). I used frozen cauliflower (about 1 1/2 cups), low sodium beans & diced tomatoes & frozen peas. I added about 3/4 tsp extra curry powder after adding the rest of the veggies, and threw in some salt, too. I used veggie broth, not water & served over brown rice. we had it with whole wheat naan! (store bought--but very good!) Thanks for sharing!!!! I shared some w/ my neighbor & she loved it!

This is a very nice and easy dish, with lots of flavor from the veggies and spices. The fresh cauliflower was looking a little sad at the store, so I picked up some frozen, so I skipped the extra cook time on the cauliflower and threw everything in together. It came out wonderfully. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

Reviewed for Aussie Forum August Recipe Swap. A very easy and tasty vegetarian dish. We used chickpeas that we soaked and pressure cooked instead of canned. Photo also being posted
