    I love Indian food, so I loved this recipe. I added a little cayenne for heat and also a cup of diced celery for green! But, all in all, it was yummy! - 10/5/12

    I just made this tonight using a box of really old Indian curry mix. It was great, and the suspicious eaters in the house are hovering around the pot! I loved that it is an oil-free recipe, but is still so savory and with great satisfying mouth feel. It's a keeper. - 1/4/12

    I made this for dinner tonight. At first, I wasn't sure if I liked it or not, but after it sat for a bit and the flavours blended it was very good. I doubled most of the spices in it as I like my stuff HOT. Thanks for a yummy and filling recipe. - 8/25/08
