I'm sorry but this wasn't as good as I expected. Firstly, the serving size is really small and scaling down to 2 servings just made 1 main dish serving. 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil was also too much and made the dish very greasy. The dish looks attractive, but could do with considerable tweaking.

This was nice. I cut down the oil to 1 tsp (I do not like the stuff)I added a tsp of whole cumin before the onions for flavour and 1/2 a tsp garam masala with the other spices. I do use lefover rice regularly in various stir fry version and I like the curd in this one. And it does look good. Thanks. :) Fay

Wonderful way to use leftover rice! We had this with Bhuna Prawn with Puris recipe#91566 -- they were fabulous together -- a great quick and easy spicy meal! The only change I made in this dish was skipping the curds because I wasn't sure what they were and using some frozen sliced green and red peppers for the red capsicum. Thanks for sharing!
