    Altered ingredient amounts. I used the same amount of spices but I also added 1 tsp of chopped ginger root, and I only used 1 440g tin of chickpeas and tomatoes, as I only wanted half the amount. It was lovely, as I like my food a little more spicy! Even my non-vegie husband enjoyed it, esp as I made him tandoori chicken too!  -  02 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Altered ingredient amounts. Halved the recipe ingredients as was only cooking for two, also added in a pinch of sugar to balance it out.  -  22 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    This was delicious! I can highly recommend it. I only made a half recipe as it was just for 2 people, but I left spice amounts the same. Spice mix was just right. Thanks Kate!  -  02 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
