This is similar to a dish that I posted, but since I can't review my own recipe, thought we would try Kevin's. This recipe has more spices, and we loved the addition of ginger, so I guess we are converted! Thanks Kevin.

I'm a longtime fan and a relatively novice cook of Indian food; this recipe, as written, came out pretty boring and dry. Everything good is there, I just had the impression that all of the spice proportions needed to be at the very least doubled and the amount of water was closer to 3/4 a cup to avoid getting a rather bland, dry dish.

It is delicious. I agree that you can cut way down on oil and add more water as needed. Delicious flavor.
