SO HOW'D IT GO?

Yum! I like this but I will say that four potatoes was tooo much! Next time I will do just two. Also my "sauce" didnt get very saucy but I wont hold that against it. Tasty and simple.  ^-^

I put a bit of hummus on top my serving yuuuum.

This is especially good using chick peas.  Also, some chopped spinach or other leafy greens stirred in at the very end of cooking really completes it.  Oh yeah....a little cumin is always good here, too.

I made this & it wasnt bad! BUT I am not sure I like the butterbeans so will try it with chickpeas next time. Does anyone know what spices can be used to replace curry powder? I cannot seem to find a curry powder I like.

This was delicious!  I made a few of the suggested modifications - I only used 2 potatoes and used 2 14.5-oz cans of tomatoes, and added a good amount of salt & pepper.  Served with warm pita and it was excellent.  A wonderful comfort meal.

I added some fresh coriander to this and it went down a treat. Thanks for a great recipe.  :>

Sisse, there are different sized cans in the US, but a standard sized can of beans is 16 oz.  I hope this helps.

Once again I have to ask: How much is a can in America / Canada? I really like a lot of these recipes, but the measurements are only logic to people living in America / Canada, So please help!  ???

I used this as a base recipe and added cauliflower, spinach, and garam masala.  (I'm a firm believer in always adding a green veggie.)  It was delicious, but I'll use at least 2 cans of beans next time.
