    This is a clean your fridge recipe. The key is VARIETY. If you don't have a veggie or have a different veggie, toss it in. Most of the flavor is in the onion and masala anyway. It doesn't have much protein, so you'll want to drink some chaas or have some type of daal with it. - 8/5/09

    I made it a 2nd time last night, and used yams for the potatos, and added chopped up bonless skinless chicken to make a complete meal. I also doubled the spices, as we like spicy food. This is a new favorite at my house. - 3/28/08

    This is one great way to eat lots of veggies and, build on your fiber intake. Eating spicy (hot to the tongue) makes you lose more weight as per Spark's article. Thanks for the recipe. I have tasted this in the restaurants, now I will make it. Yum! - 10/13/07

    This was absolutely delicious. The fact that the recipe included so many vegetables and unique flavor combinations really influenced my decision to make it (I made it for dinner the same day I saw the recipe). Following a "flexitarian" lifestyle, I always appreciate finding new vegetarian recipes. - 5/25/10
