  1. Not to be mean, but yucko! I followed the recip exactly and when it was done all I could taste was salt. Then I noticed that there isn't even any actual curry in the recipe! It took almost everything in my spice rack plus a can of tomatoes to make it edible, but it still wasn't good. If you're looking for a nice Indian curry, this is not the way to go.
  2. Excellent dish! Easy to make and sooo good. It's a keeper in our house :)
  3. YYYYYUUUUMMMMYYYY!!!!!This is a MUST try recipe. It's now a recipe that I've made about 4 times in the past 1 1/2 month. DH, kids, and even my sister (who is really picky) loved this dish! The combo of spices is excellent. Thanks bundura :)


I love, love, love Zaar! I don't think that I could cook without this site. It is such a great resource for all the cooks out there. My favorite thing about Zaar is that you can add and read comments by other members who tried each recipe.
