Lorac.....this recipe is AWESOME!!! I needed a really good dinner last night after a terrible day, and this REALLY brightened my evening. This dish is spectacular. We had it as a main meal with chappatis... It was just heavenly. I have an idea for a variation.. I plan to try tonight or tomorrow haha. I could eat this stuff daily!!! :-) THANK YOU SO MUCH!. I would give it 10 Stars if I could!!!
So tasty and easy to do! Had this as a side dish with Sue L's chole and some brown rice. Can't wait for lunch time, when I can attack the leftovers!
Tasty! I served it over basmati rice cooked in vegetable broth, with a side of plain yogurt w/ honey. Two Roma tomatoes in the dish was a little minimalist, but they were all I had on hand. I would make this again :)
