This is very tasty, easy to make and it's also healthy. I used 300 grams of baby spinach and added salt & pepper, but otherwise followed the recipe. The flavours are light and fresh, and it tastes good hot or cold. Next time I might try adding garlic and curry powder, but I'll make it this way again too. Thanks for a great recipe! ***I've since made this adding two teaspoons of hot curry powder and 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, and it was fantastic. 5 Stars!***
Delicious and satisfying. Only had one onion so I followed the suggestions of the other reviewers and supplemented with generous amounts of garlic (about a tablespoon finely minced). Also added some Kala Jeera, a spice I picked up in an Indian store and didn't know how to use. The dish was fantastic. Like that there's room to improvise with this recipe! Served with couscous.

Oops, I forgot to get onions and a lemon when I was grocery shopping, so I was forced to make a couple of changes. I don't think they changed the taste TOO much, though. I added a couple of garlic cloves instead of the onions and added some hot sauce for acidity. I also cut back a bit on the cumin and added some curry powder and salt. I put it in a wrap and ate it hot. I really liked it and I'm happy I have leftovers. I will make it again with onions and lemon juice!
