    I included every ingredient and wouldn't recommend making ANYTHING optional--especially the garam masala. This dish is anything but "flat"! My boyfriend hasn't had much Indian food but said, "If this is Indian, I LIKE indian food! Be sure to use 1/2 t. EACH of the garlic paste and ginger paste. - 11/21/10

    I realized as I was putting this together that I didn't have ground coriander so I'm not sure if that was the secret ingredient. It was ok, but not as good as I was hoping. I found the flavour a bit flat. sorry - 12/11/09
