Share it:

A delicious indian meal with a tangy, rather than traditional curry flavour. The cherry tomatoes are refreshing and the whole meal leaves you looking forward to the next time. Try serving with homemade Spiced Basmati Rice.

"Very yummy, and surprisingly authentic tasting. I usually can't get Inidan food quite right, but this was great! A few of the ingredients were hard to find so here's what I learned... coriander sprigs are really just cilantro (same plant, weird, 'huh), onion seeds can go by several different names as well."
