  • My husband and I just made this recipe and it was awesome! Really loved the flavors. This was a healthy way to satisfy our cravings for Indian food, especially when there isn't a good indian restaurant where we live. Thanks so much for this recipe. We will definitely make it again. - 7/25/09

  • Where on earth can you find mango powder? I love making indian food, but have never been able to find that stuff. What would this taste like without the mango powder if I need to omit it? - 2/24/09
