I added potatoes and of course a little more water and salt for them. I found this recipe more delicious with the potatoes than without.

Great dish. Added 2 teaspoons cayenne for added spice. Everyone loved it. I used small string beans and the cooking time was about 20 minutes.

I added extra tomato paste, a couple of extra garlic cloves (crushed), a little extra curry, and I left out the oil. I did have to cook the water down to get a good sauce. Oh, yum yum. I'm addicted.
