    Very tasty. Didn’t have diced tomatoes but used crushed. Made it without oil or added salt for added health benefits.

    Delicious recipe. My burner was on low and still my spices burnt in the beginning giving the dish a bitter flavor. I tried to manage that by adding chutney and some sugar to the dish. There was still a bitter tinge to it, but I can tell that had my spices not burnt, it would have been a solid dish

    Great! Easy recipes with good flavor. Can be expensive if you don’t have all of the seasonings, but once you do, very cheap and quick to make

    Tasted great, I should’ve cooked a bit longer Chick peas are better the next day Lots of leftovers I’ll make it again!

    Good recipe. I'll probably use less ginger next time. Otherwise the spices are really good. It also makes a TON of food so I'll probably halve the recipe next time

    Relatively fast and easy. I know it's supposed to be healthy, but I had to add some butter at the end- about 2 tbsp. I like my butter. What are you gonna do? Makes way more that what I consider 4 servings to be. Leftovers!
