    Nancy's Pantry's Note:

    I prepared this wonderfully fragrant dish as a meal (vs. side dish) and served it with some Naan bread. My husband rated this dish a "9" on a scale of 1 to 10.

      I halved this recipe, but it still makes quite a lot. Loved the jalapenos in this, although it does make it a bit spicy. I enjoyed mine with some Naan bread and raita. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.

      This was very good, and it makes quite a bit! I did reduce the oil a bit, and I omitted the cilantro since I can't abide the stuff (yep, I'm one of THOSE people!). I loved the inclusion of cauliflower in this classic dish. Next time I would like to try pureeing the tomatoes to make for a smoother "sauce". Also, it is totally reasonable to substitute garam masala for most of the spices in this dish (turmeric, clove, and salt excepted), which I did to make life easier. I did choose to omit the clove since my garam masala contained cinnamon and I thought that was close enough. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.
