Pretty bland by the end, made another “street food” version of this dish and that had WAY more flavor. Once everything was cooked all I could taste was the tomato.

Best Homemade Ever! Will make this again often. I substituted lemon for lime that’s it!

It's become one of my favorite dishes. Highly recommend!

Ok, but way too lemony, which over-powered the spices. I had to add tiny amounts of baking soda to counter-act. I also added a good amount of garam masala, which made the flavor more authentic to us.
