    Traditionally, adding the spices and ginger & garlic after cooking onion (saute approx 1-2 minutes) and before adding tomatoes makes for better flavor. I used half the tomato and twice the cocnut milk. It was tasty. Thanks! - 5/31/11

    This is fantastic! I modified it to add a whole can of light coconut milk and 2 (14.5 oz) cans of chickpeas (rather than having half-cans leftover) and it was fabulous: mild and delicious. And the house smelled amazing! Excellent! - 11/7/07

    Very healthy and yummy. I reduced the amt. of oil and added more tomatoes and chick peas. It didn't have enough punch, so I added some curry. Still a bit bland, but I realize now it's b/c I added more ingredients w/o adding more spices. My house smelled so exotic! - 9/3/07

  • Put all the spices in just before the onions are done, cook together for 5 mins or so then add the water. Chop some carrots and steam with the cauliflower (and broccoli). Carry on with the recipe. Serve over rice, then the steamed vegetables then the curry mix. - 7/12/13

    I'm going to try something similar tonight. I'm trying to avoid so much sodium. I washed and put chick peas to soak over night and day. I will cut up one tomato and add spinach instead. I will also use a little coconut cream instead of milk. - 3/5/13

  • This was a nice recipe, however the soduim reported seem extremely too high per serving. I did use dry beans to reduce the soduim as I normally do, but I don't believe canned chick peas would put the sodium up that high. I may even dry peas and spinanch next time. Thank you for the recipe! - 1/15/11
