    my husband is Indian and this just didn't have enough "kick" for us. If you like it mild then it should be good for you.  -  06 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a nice, clean and simple side dish for an Indian meal. Some of the reviewers are wanting it to be something else. Please note that the recipe calls for cumin *seed*, not ground cumin, which would definitely overpower this dish if mistaken. I made this recipe as written, salting to taste, and enjoyed it very much with Steve's Chicken Korma from this site. Thanks for the recipe!  -  07 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
