This was good, but not great. We thought it was a little bland even after I doubled the jalapeno and added a heaping tsp. of garam masala. However, I will try this again with a different combo of spices b/c I thought the consistency was perfect without added heavy cream. Thanks for a good spring board to a healthier version of my favorite Indian dish.
