    I have to edit my initial review -- as I've made this again. I've since learned (having finally stopped moving long enough to look this up - lol!) that dhaniya powder is coriander, and have to say that with it, this recipe is still positively fab, maybe even better! :) (I feel so silly for not looking it up sooner!)

    My hubby in from India and he really liked this. He said it had a "sweet" flavor. Not sure where that came from!!

    Sorry Char, but somehow something went wrong. Usually all your recipes come out very well, but this was not up to my expectations. I do not know what went wrong. I did follow the recipe to the dot, and usually any curry gets a fantastic flavor when kaju is used, but somehow this did not come out well.

    This is an absolute ten. I left out the mushrooms cause my husband is not a fan. It isn't difficult to make. It's practically like making any indian bhaji which is so simple once you get used to it, but the taste just stands out. The cashews give it a really rich flavor.
