Adjust the cayenne to control how hot you want this. You may also add in chopped fresh jalapeno. I usually serve over rice or polenta.

I followed the directions exactly for this recipe in the crock pot and it was horrendous! I couldn't even eat it. I'm not sure why it turned out so badly -- the only thing I can come up with is that it's because I used frozen veggies. Though, that shouldn't have completely ruined it.
This was very good. I was looking for a vegetarian dinner and this one is a winner. I think I added too much tumeric, but that is my bad. Served it on basmati. Thanks again!
I liked this recipe but I was expecting more. I followed it exactly, although I cooked it on the stove and not in the crockpot. I needed to add a touch of extra water. I found it needed a lot more cayenne than the 1/2 tsp. called for. It didn't have much of an "Indian" flavor and could have used more spices in the spice paste in general. It was also a bit too tomato-ey for my taste. I served it with naan.
