Amazing! I used red skin potatoes and only used 2 chopped tomatoes, and substituted cayenne for the red chili powder, and it came out fantastic. The potatoes were cooked perfectly and the spices in this made it truly delicious. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT8.

So good! I've made this recipe several times now. Stopped using the coconut after the first time because as another reviewer stated we couldn't taste it anyway. I do have to cut back on the red chili powder. If you're using the pure red chili powder and not the typical blend of spices labeled "chili powder", as I do, this is pretty hot. For the tomatoes I use a can of diced tomatoes. Absolutely delicious and a regular in our house now. Thanks for posting!

This was very nice. I will be using it in my regular rotations. I used coconut cream instead of powdered coconut and I added a few extra spices that I incorporated from other alu matar recipes (2 bay leaves, 2 green cardamom pods, 4 curry leaves, 1 cinamon stick, 1 teaspoon of corainder powder, 1/2 teaspoon fennel powder and 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder and 1/2 a teaspoon more of mustard seeds and cumin seeds) and abit more peas and potatoes. It tasted very nice this way (i like things spicier) but I think it still would have been very nice even without the extra spices.

This was delicious, though I can't say I tasted the coconut. It was nicely spiced. I used more peas and less oil, salt and cayenne for our tastes. I used medium potatoes, but maybe larger ones would have made for a more balanced ratio. Will definitely make this again! Served 3 as the sole entree, probably would serve the number stated on the recipe if served as part of a multi-course Indian meal.
