Yum recipe.. Yummy food. All of us enjoyed the meal. There was few alteration that I had done. I had added / saute three onions before adding spices besides frying crisp onion. So in total i used 6 onions. also one can add tomatoes after adding spices as there was no mention of adding tomatoes on the recipe. Could have been missed out. Final output.. Delicious

Oh wow!!! I have been searching for my original recipe from south africa when making this dish for my girlfriend every Friday!!! Thank you so much, - as I recall, layering is a key object in the dish and I used to add par cooked lentils just before layering the rice! I also used to put a few hard boiled eggs into the layers as well. A schleep to prepare, but, so very worth all the trouble. I am making this for the weekend.. thank you again !

Oh, I wish I could give this more stars!! My friend and I made this tonight for dinner. What a beautiful thing this was. We were both in the mood for chicken, so we used that in place of mutton. We used carrots instead of potato (I did not deep fry them)and after the yoguart we added a tablespoon of tomato paste. The smells were out of this world wonderful!! To serve we garnished with garam masala and fresh cilantro. We also took your advice and had cucumber raita, and I am so glad we did!! We had a lot of fun in the kitchen and will be making this many more times. Thank you once again Chari, for another great recipe.

This was delicious. I used 2 large onions which I thought was too much (I get confused with the grams measurements!). I didn't have bay leaves so I left them out. I used 5 cloves and two one-inch pieces of cinnamon. Two tomatoes were perfect and I used a little more red chili powder as I like a little more heat but that's a matter of personal preference. It was a nice blend of flavours.Thanks for the recipe, Charishma
