Very flavorful, but oh-too-spicy-hot for my delicate palate with 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper; the curry and garam masala also added "pepperyness" to it as well. However, my husband LOVES curry and LOVES spice and he asked to not change a thing! So, we compromised; next time I make it (and there will be a next time) - leave out the cayenne and he will add it to his own portions. Delicious as a meal on its own and perfect for leftovers. Your home will smell SO fragrant after making this! Do not be afraid to use the whole (large) onion (for sure if it's a sweet yellow, like Vidalia), and add more garlic. The flavors intertwine and blend so nicely that it's actually pretty much fool-proof. When the weather is warm, serve with a crisp salad or a bowl of mixed fruit. When it's the cooler months, serve with a basket full of flan or crusty bread and a big bowl of those winter veggies that seem to always go overlooked. So, if you love spice, it's perfect just the way it is. If you're like me an enjoy flavorful over spice, then you might want to conservatively add the cayenne, curry, and garam. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I would have given it 5 stars if it weren't so spicy for my palate. My husband is mad - he wanted 5 but I'm writing this! ;)
