    I thought this was way to spicy and I only used 1 teaspoon of chilli powder. I can usually eat spicy food as well but had to make yoghurt sauce to eat this!  -  27 Aug 2015


    I tried this last night and it was very tasty. Think I might add bit of sugar to tone down the tomato next time, though.  -  01 Jul 2009
