Excellent! I can handle spice but this very spicy so you may want to cut the pepper flakes by half if you are a lightweight. Delicious and so flavorful! Only change was to use 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger minced instead of the powder and added chopped cilantro at the end. Definitely an keeper!
Very, very delicious - even better the next day. Keeper recipe - served with rice and peas.
Incredible in every way. So VERY, very good! Worthy of more than 5 stars. DH and I loved the flavors. I halved the recipe, did not change a thing. Perfectly spicy, served with naan and rice,but we didn't touch the rice. Another winner RBS, thanks for posting.
