      This is a really nice, mild dish which was ideal for introducing my kiddos to Indian cuisine. The grown-ups wished for a bit more spice and kick, but could have easily changed that by leaving the chile seeds and/or adding more pepper. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly and easily this came together--the chopping was the hardest part! I served it with rice and sliced tomatoes, and really wish I had followed the advice to serve with naan or another flatbread instead. Ah well, next time! Thanks for sharing :). Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.
