Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

If you are a lover of Indian food, then this is a recipe that you will really enjoy, this recipe is one of my all time favorite Indian dishes! Of coarse all ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste. It is very simple to make and even easier if you prepare the masala a day in advance to save time. Garam masala spice and coconut milk can be found in the Indian section of any major supermarket. Serve this over basmati rice. You will love this!

Absolutely delicious!!!! My only quarrel is with the nutritional value part - there is no way that these ingredients add up to 3,000 calories (serving 6, 500 calories per serving). I think it means to say 500 calories for all 6 servings (although we found it really served 3 because it was so good we wanted more!)
