Very good. Will definitely make again.

Holy cow, this is good! I was out of garam masala and just used ground mustard and fennel in addition to the other spices on the recipe's ingredient list. I can never find amchoor powder, either, so I used the juice of a whole lemon. Went light on the cayenne, and I think my toddler is eating it. Lol. In love with this recipe!

Used pasata instead of tinned tomatoes. Turned out well.
Ron S. 8 Jun 2017
Excellent. Making for third time. After the first time I went out and found a Cour powder. Excellent addition to my spice cabinet.

Great! Served with cauliflower and rice
Susan 21 Apr 2017
Very tasty. My only problem was, I put a little to much water in, but that was solved with a naan. Whole family enjoyed it. Would definitely make it again.

Easy to make. Tastes great. Added cauliflower and spinach for some extra tastes and textures. Doubled up on cayene because I had no chillies...huge mistake

Great taste, goes well with home made vegan Naan bread! I put just a dash of soy cream in it, and it brought out the flavours even more.
Chris 19 Jan 2017

Followed the recipe to a tee – it turned out ok. Use a little more chickpea and less onion. Tasted good!

A nice dish and easy to make! I didn't have amchur, so I used lemon juice as suggested. Next time I may add some mushrooms and/or mango or dried apricots.
Aaron E. 29 Mar 2016
Really good! I tweaked it a little, using a couple of jalapeños when I couldn't find green chile. I also added a bit more water and some tomato paste. Didn't deseed the peppers, and it come out HOT.
Tami A. 21 Mar 2016
Very easy to make if you have have the ingredients, which I did:) Served it over cauliflower rice and topped it with yogurt and toasted cumin sauce. Will definitely make this again😋

I know the ingredient count is daunting, but just the author says, it's worth it. I substituted a few ingredients (turmeric-omitted, coriander-cilantro paste) because I didn't have them on hand, and used diced tomatoes with Italian herb spices (didn't see the label until after they went into the pot) and it was still one of my favourite dishes.
