  1. This was pretty good. I didn't get it to brown as nicely as I'd have liked--my error, I'd guess. The flavors were like a toned-down take on Indian food. I used potato, carrot, celery, zucchini, onion, peas broccoli, and cauliflower. I like strong flavors, so I think I would play around with the spices to get more oomph out of it--probably coriander, garam masala, and other Indian flavors. EDIT: The leftovers were great! I smooshed them out thin and put under the broiler at 400 degrees, letting them get browned and crisp on top. Then drizzled with a sweet hot chutney. Yum! Would make again!
  2. This made a quick, easy lunch. The seasonings smell divine while they're heating. A great way to use up leftover veggies without feeling as if you're eating leftovers! Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR.
  3. oh this was sooo good. I made use of all the leftover veggies from our canadian thanksgiving dinner :)
  4. What a nice change of pace. This is a great side dish crispy out side and tender inside. Did cut the spice in half as DH sometime will not eat if overly spiced, however he thoroughly enjoyed this made with just half the spice. If looking for a change of pace this is one you should try. Thanks for the post.
  5. Loved the flavor of these, but could not get mine to brown and crisp like in the beautiful picture. I'm sure it was something I did, but this would have been much better if I could have gottenthem crispy on the outside. Maybe I needed more oil...anyway, they were simple and tasty :)
