I thought this up last night and it turned out pretty well. I'm not sure what the exact measurements are, so I guessed. This can be made into a vegan meal by substituting the chicken broth for veggie and the regular yogurt for soy. Feel free to adjust to your own tastes.

This is a really good way to add fiber to your diet. I used white beans and parsley and it turned out great. I've made it a second time with water instead of the broth and parsley instead of cilantro... it's even better.

Loved it. I added a jar of roasted red peppers and used a little less cayenne.

This was fantastic! Really loved it and so did my boyfriend. It has a very strong Indian flavor to it. Note that I didn't have the exact ingredients - I had tomato sauce instead of paste and chili powder instead of cayanne (which I think may have given a really nice smoky flavor to it) and since my substitutions were milder forms I just doubled the amounts. Can't compare since I haven't tried the original recipe, but it turned out great and I'm sure the original would also. HIGHLY recommend if you like Indian style curries.
