    Sue Lau's Note:

    I always like this as a side dish, although it can be served as a vegetarian main dish. I generally like to make several types of things when I cook Indian and I usually will cook this or palak paneer along with the others.

      This is delicious! I was a little worried at first because I thought it tasted rather bland, but I had made it in advance and when I heated it up for dinner the flavors were perfect!!

      Easy and delicious%u2014my favorite combination! I love the mix of flavors from the spices, onion, garlic and ginger! Didn't change a thing and I thought it was perfect as is and bursting with flavor. All four of my kids, age 13 to 6 liked it as much as I did. We served it as a main dish with some cooked chickpeas thrown in with the peas and brown rice on the side.

      Great recipe! Made as written, except for cutting back on the red pepper (personal taste). I used a bought paneer from the Indian grocery. Will definitely make again- thanks Sue!
