I am a spice person, I want food to burn me when I'm eating it. And, never being one to follow the rules, I did make some amendments to the spices in this recipe, and added a few extra ingredients to "make it my own". I used an extra clove of garlic, a bigger piece of ginger, and "heaped" the dry spice measurements. rather than using chili powder, I used 1/2 heaping tsp of chili powder, and 1 tsp of cayenne pepper to kick up the heat. I also added some red pepper flakes and about 1 tsp of salt. In the last 5 minutes, I added whole cashews and raisins - about 1/4 cup of each. I garnished with fresh chopped cilantro and cashews. Served this with Basmati rice that had been cooked with whole cloves and a cinnamon stick. My husband said that it was the best curry type dish he's ever eaten. Great base recipe for someone like me who likes to "tinker". I will DEFINATELY make this again! Thanks!!
