      Made recipe as posted except left out the prunes, and used white rice. Great fast dinner, with great flavor. The spices we thought were right on the money. Definately have to add this one to my 20 minute or less dinner cookbook. It is a winner here. Made for PRMR tag.

      Excellent!!! We really enjoyed this I made as stated and it tasted wonderful, but I made a couple of changes towards the end to suit our taste. I also subbed red currents for the prunes as we do not like prunes. I added a full teaspoon of cumin, half a teaspoon of turmeric and 2 Tablespoons of hot mango chutney just to give it some spice. This is so easy to throw together with such an outstanding end result. We will enjoy this one often. Loved, Loved and Loved, thanks Sydney Mike for another great recipe.
