  • Why do I like it?

First of all, I love Indian food and spices, but have never made any at home.  This dish was as satisfying as any - and you don't for a minute miss the meat!  It is a hearty main dish which goes well with quinoa or other grains.  

This is an easy "one pot" meal.  Leftovers are great!  I like to garnish with cauliflower sour cream.

  • Any recipe notes or tweaks?

No tweaks needed here!  I did add the cauliflower sour cream garnish.  It would also be good with cashew sour cream or non-dairy raita sauce.
