    this was really good. i doubled the spices since i like food a little more spicy, left out the salt but added a vegetable stock cube to the water and let it melt in plus i added two chopped carrots which i fried with the onions simply because i wanted to use them up. will certainly make again.  -  15 Sep 2014


    This is outrageously good. Like eating at my favorite restaurant, only a lot cheaper.  -  23 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The spice ratios in this recipe are no good. The amount of turmeric and garam masala struck me as excessive but I made the recipe as stated anyway. The result was flavorful, to be sure, but the flavors were not balanced correctly. I ate it, nonetheless, and doused it with yogurt to mask the strong turmeric taste. I guess you could make this with 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric & garam masala and it MIGHT be OK, but there are so many other great Indian/Pakistani dishes out there that I wouldn't bother.  -  16 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
