      I really loved this, I used the whole recipe and followed the measurements, but added three ingredients from another recipe and I think it turned out beautifully! I added 1 cinnamon stick and a bay leaf. When it was almost finished cooking I added a squeeze of lemon.

      Mmmmm too easy! I cannot wrap my brain around how easy it is to make the most delicious, healthy dinner! I ate a tester bowl and planned to take the rest to work for lunches throughout the week, but finished half the pot in one time I'll double it ;) Thank you!

      This was nice and easy to make, thanks! Next time I'll add more spices (prob some chilli and coriander powders), more garlic and ginger, and will cook it for a touch less (prob stick to 20 mins). It's a perfect meal to make on a Sunday and take to work for weekday lunches!
