I made so many substitutions, I'm not sure that it should even qualify as the same recipe. But it was absolutely wonderful; this spice blend can handle just about any combination of firmish leftover vegetables you happen to have around. I used carrots, zucchini, miscellaneous potatoes, yellow and red bell peppers, plus the onions and garlic as directed. I also used mostly lemon juice plus some "tropical" juice, as we were out of orange juice. I omitted the almonds as we have a nut allergy, and skipped the spinach as we didn't have any. I did have all the specified spices, and those are clearly what make the dish. I decreased the cayenne and the salt a tad for the children, but otherwise left the spices as they were. Needless to say, I'm keeping this one around -- it'll be my new "what to do with a whole bunch of leftover veg" curry dish. I happened to have some leftover tumeric/cumin/black sesame couscous from yesterday (weird coincidence - totally different recipe), and it was terrific over that, but also very good over plain old brown rice.
