Indeed, this cooked into a thick and spicy delight. I increased the spices (ex. cayenne!) by about half, and just sprinkled a little salt on at the end. BTW, we got six servings, great with Delicious Scrambled Tofu. Made for PAC.

I'm a novice when it comes to Indian cooking and this is the first Indian recipe that I've made that has turned out good. The potatoes have a nice flavor and this dish is similar tasting to what is served at my favorite Indian restaurant. I used 1/2 tsp cumin seeds and also added a chopped onion half way through the frying time. Thanks SeeBee for posting this recipe. I will make it again.

Excellent! Almost exactly like I get at a local Indian restaurant. Like another reviewer, I also added extra cayenne pepper, but I really love extra heat.
