these were good and easy. the only thing is i had no mustard seeds, only powder, so i have no idea how much powder i shoudl have used, so i guessed. i think next time i will add fresh ginger, more coriander (maybe a bit of cilantro instead), and some garlic. thanks for an easy indian veggie!

Really wonderful. Fresh taste that does not interfere with many of the spicier Indian main dishes we make, yet holds its own with flavor. Nice and colorful. Will be made again and again.
