Somewhat difficult in that I did not know what a "grinder" was so I used my food processor. I did not know how long to cook the onion paste. Directions not all together clear, but in the end, a very good dish. I added mixed veggies and served it over risotto and quinoa...very good. - 1/10/11
I love the flavors in Indian food and the fact that there are many vegetarian options. Like many of my favorite recipes, this one is an exercise in patience, which for me leads to a very zen cooking experience. I made no modifications, served with basmati rice and chapati with mango chutney. - 12/6/10
