DH and I had this for lunch and found it to be a quick, tasty, colorful meal. We used 2 serrano chili peppers (unseeded) and thought the dish could use about triple the garam masala. Thank you for posting. We enjoyed this dish.

This was just as belkathy said it would be-quick, delicious and colorful! We can't get rotel tomatoes, so I substituted a can of tomatoes and a small can of mild diced green chillies (kindly sent to me by Rise) for those, and a Thai Birds Eye chilli for the serrano (can't get those either).
