Great blend of spices! Very aromatic! I didn't pre-cook the veggies in the microwave, but started cooking from the point 3, and added the veggies (omitted the beans and added eggplant, zucchini, pepper, kohlrabi) to the oil-onion-spice mix in the pan, and let all the ingredients simmer until the potatoes were done (about an hour). Very delicious served with basmati rice and pita bread!

I made this with a can of diced tomatoes, and added a little chicken broth when it looked like it was drying out. Like others have noted, the veggies take a lot longer to cook than the recipe suggests.

This is another good recipe we've added to our rotation. I throw in red kidney or garbanzo beans and serve it over rice to make it a one dish, complete-protein main meal. I also use fresh ginger, increase the spices, and add more liquid (sometimes yogurt).

The dish has a good taste but I added extra spices and water so It would be saucy to serve over rice. Next time I will also add chickpeas or some other beans.

We really like this recipe, but prefer it a bit more saucy - so I double the amount of spices then add a cup or more of water at the end (when adding the cooked vegetables). Then, serve over rice.

I used different vegies and added water to make more gravy and it was great, my husband is from TamilNadu and he loved it. I serves it with chapati.

Cut water to 2 cups and use 14.5oz. can tomatoes in place of fresh. Add 8 ounces red kidney beans to make complete-protein main meal.

Mmm! This was very tasty. It definitely will stay in my rotation. Not too spicy, but still very Indian. I add chicken pieces with the onions and saute till they are no longer pink for a non-meatless option.
