      Made this yesterday and although I liked it well enough, it was even better today! I made some minor changes but I don't think it affected the finished dish in the end. I do not know of, nor have seen nigella seeds so I took a small shallot and minced and smashed it instead. I also coarse chopped the plums because my Indian student does not like his fruit or vegetables unless cut small. I really enjoyed this as a nice change and will make again but will cut the sugar down to about half of what the recipe calls for next time.
