Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Like Avensis, I thought it was rather mild. I used fresh ginger & that may have saved it; even so while waiting for my cardemom pods to simmer, I put in more coriander, salt, and a teaspoon of garam masala. Still not satisfied, I put in a teaspoon of Chinese garlic and chili sauce to pump it up. Submitted by:

I was going to make a traditional recipe with the cheese and some cream. Then, I found this recipe online. Brainiac, you deserve your name! FABULOUS! I halved the salt, used fresh tomatoes and added one more tiny cardamon pod. Definately a keeper - THANKS! Submitted by:

I've made this twice in a week already! Only changes I made were decreasing the salt, adding a pinch of ground cardamom instead of the pods, and adding a little turmeric for color. HUGE portions; great bang for the calorie buck. Better the next day, too! Submitted by:

This looks good! I wonder if perhaps it's a little high in sodium content? The meal contains more sodium I consume in a single day. I think I may dice my own tomatoes to cut out the sodium contained in the can. I am looking forward to trying it out!! Submitted by:

so tasty! didn't expect it to make such a substantial meal with just these basic ingredients. I used 1/2 tbsp salt but I think it can go even lower. yum! Submitted by:

Loved the recipe, however, are you sure you need 1 tablespoon of salt? You already have a lot of sodium in the canned tomatoes! I put in just 1/2 teaspoon, and it was delicious! It's a great recipe otherwise, thanks for sharing it! Submitted by:

I liked this very much, my husband said it was just OK. I used low fat sour cream instead of yogurt, and I used curry rather than the cumin and corriander. Submitted by:
