"Bhaji is a fry, so do not add water and you will really enjoy the drier variety of an Indian curry. Great with breads like naan or paratha, or with rice and daal (Indian lentil soup)."

This recipe is wonderful. Even with the changes I had to make due to ingredients I lacked I thought I was at a high end Indian restaurant! (Since I was out of peas and ginger I used dry ginger and extra cauliflower.) Thank you for a wonderful recipe that I will use again and again.
Have never tried this before so I have nothing to compare it to. It was good, but felt it could have used some salt. Also, we didn't have black mustard seed. This might have made a difference. We'll try it again. Made it with the Biyrani rice which was outstanding.
My family and I loved this. I used dry ginger, broccoli instead of cauliflower (because I didn't have it) and used extra ground cumin since I didn't have cumin seeds either, and used canned chopped green chile peppers instead of fresh and it all turned out really well. I also sprinkled a little salt on it in the end. Will definitely make again but will try to stick closer to the original recipe next time and I'm sure it will be even better.
I loved this recipe, it was a big help since I recently went vegan. I take advantage of the roasted chilies for sale at road side stands in the fall and freeze them. This addition added a smokey flavor, awesome.
I thought this overall was very good but too dry. I didn't have the cumin whole seed nor the mustard seeds and I think that could have enhanced the flavor. This is worth making again ...I would just add some stock to moisten it.
Very easy to make and versatile dish. I changed out cauliflower because i didn't have any with shiitake mushrooms (they were going to go bad!) and regular peas with snow peas. I ate it as a main dish and served as a side for family. Added plain yogurt and pita bread! MMM. Will definitely be making this again.
Really delicious! So much healthier than the cream-based Indian dishes. I didn't have black mustard seed and used double cumin seeds. Also, I substituted frozen peas for fresh...I just added them to the dish later. I will definitely make this again.
