Very good! Kid friendly vegetables. Spices were more sweet than spicy hot. My version used some cherry tomatoes that were on their last days, and I substituted ground mustard for the seeds (I thought I had mustard seeds then realized that I didn't). I also added 2 turns of freshly ground black pepper (read in a parenting magazine that black pepper combined with tumeric is extra healthy) and used only half the cumin. At first glance I thought that it wouldn't make that much so I doubled the recipe (I was wrong). Now I have lots of yummy leftovers.
