Really yummy! I skipped the cayenne since I have 2 smally kids but it was still so good. I also added a splash of soy sauce once I turned off the heat. I served over rice with FRESH basil on top. Its a keeper. Thanks!!!
I made it as per recipe, and the peanut butter was far too overpowering and made the dish very dry. Next time I'll cut the peanut butter in half.
I thought this was really good, and surprisingly, my husband did too. Easy to make, and I had everything in my kitchen/pantry. I gave it a 4 because I reserve 5's for the very, very, very best. I will make this again. I LOVE this website!! Thanks!
I'm editing my previous post and making this a 5 star rating. I really like grainy things. In particular, sometimes beans and rice is really great and very satisfying. This is very satisfying in the same way.
I just ate this with my family and everyone thought it was great! The only comment my mom had was that she would've added a little salt, but she could just sprinkle some on at the table. I added chickpeas, but think it would've been just fine by itself as well. Easy to make, and I would reccomend it!
Delicious! Cook rice according to the package though, this was too much water for my brown rice. Also, I added chickpeas. LOVE it! Thanks for the recipe!
This stew is surprisingly quick and easy to cook. It will impress your family and friends if they love Indian food, because it tastes so complex and captures just the right flavors and fragrances of good Indian cuisine.
Almost has a vodka sauce-like color and taste. Had a slight nutty sweet taste. I added some peas and dry-roasted peanuts. Only used 1/2 cup peanut butter and was perfect! Used ground ginger, so only used 1 tbsp and still had a nice mild spiciness. So easy and quick!
Enjoyed trying this one out, with just a few minor variations for personal preference.
1. reduced peanut butter to 1/3 cup max.
2. added a handful of cashew chunks
3. added salt to taste
4. added hot chilie powder to taste
5. used freshly stewed rather than canned tomatoes (4 extra large)
This sauce is excellent over a bed of plain stewed spinach.
