This is a great, easy Indian dish - and totally vegetarian. Increase cayenne to give it more heat. I serve this over basmati rice.

The Vegetarian Epicure is an old cookbook, but it does have some great recipes.

Delicious! I was looking for a recipe that would allow me to use up some leftover green beans and spinach in the refrigerator. I modified the recipe somewhat. I didn't have zucchini or paprika. I cut down the garlic a bit and added frozen spinach. I didn't expect it to taste like much and my family wasn't impressed...until they tasted it! I thought it tasted like palak paneer, which I love. Next time I will delete the potatoes and add tofu.
