The amount of salt in this recipe may seem like alot, but don't cut back the amount as it is crucial to the flavor.

My husband and I really enjoyed eating this as a part of our dinner the other night. Over half of it got eaten and we had the rest for lunch the next day. The spices really give this dish a nice "kick." After reading some of the other reviews, I decided to use only 1/2 a tablespoon of salt. I also only used 1 1/2 tablespoons of each of the spices (garlic, curry, & chili powder). I decided not to use any cayenne. It was definitely worth making and we will definitely be having this again very soon! Delicious! :D


I made this last night and cut the recipe in half while cutting the salt down to 1 teaspoon, which was perfect because I added veggie broth instead of water in the end. I think a little less curry would make the spices taste even better. I wanted to take a picture of it but it was so good I ate it before I could get the camera. I served it on rice. This was delicous!
