Recipe by Brian Holley
Another version of the recipe that I posted, before. This version has no lemon juice so is smoother. The use of ghee helps give the dish a touch of class. This version is for STARDUST. So try it and post me another review. Please.

This was a super tasty dish! Really impressed by it. Yum yum. I did make some alterations for my own tastes, I added an extra tsp of cumin, chilli and turmeric and it was perfect medium spice for me. I would like to try making this into a lower fat version as I'd live to have it more often but it is very fattening. Next time I will use sunflower oil at the beginning and use only ghee to blend with the garam masala I will also use yoghurt or single cream in place of double cream. Instructions could have been a little clearer (I peeled my tomatoes before adding them!) but was delicious nonetheless!
