I love the Indian way with spices. This dish is not only deliciously good for you.

This turned out really good, not as spicy as I was expecting but it worked really well. When I first tried a spoonfull it tasted a bit bland, I got side tracked and came back an hour later... huge difference, def needs a little time to meld together. Looking forward to having this for lunch tomorrow.
