Just made this and, as written, the tomato flavor is overpowering while dulling what could be a subtler flavor profile. I'm not serving for a few hours so when I reheat, perhaps some of the flavor will have expanded and from there it's likely I'll do as many others have said in their reviews — add other Indian spices, throw in some carrots and perhaps some green peas for color and taste, and then whisk a yogurt garnish on for creaminess and width.
Definitely leave out the ketchup if you're doing the paste, and perhaps add honey — the tomato and lemon are already acidic, which is why there's some bad after taste since it's not really balanced out by anything. I don't think honey or brown sugar will necessarily make it "sweet" or sweeter;" rather I think it will give dimension to the flavor profile.
