AWESOME! after trying to fake basmati, peas & carrots curry (no sauce) to no avail & not liking pre-packaged fare much either, this is the 1st real curry i've cooked & it's DELICIOUS! it's a good "mild & basic" curry with a subtle heat aftertaste. i was hoping for more of a the coriander sweetness or cilantro "freshness" etc. i've tasted in restauraunts, but just like the 1st time i tasted indian food, this dish grew on me and is a total keeper! it's the curry equivilent of "comfort food". i made a "1/2 batch" & subbed olive oil for ghee as mentioned, added extra yoghurt for creaminess. 1 tsp of generic curry powder for "sweetness" & used 1 can of peas & it's juice and loved it so much i joined this site to give it five stars. a nice subtle recipe with all of it's flavors in harmony that doesn't bury the mild flavor of the peas. this curry will sit alongside other spicier (& expensive ingredient) curries when i find some other good looking recipes. it's a perfect starter curry for those afraid of spicy foods and curries can get HOT & but is actually SPICIER than the bland watered down stuff you get in oregon restaunts! if you hate bland foods, DON'T move to oregon! it's ironic that a state whose name is one letter shy of the name of a SPICE is home to kung po chicken that tastes like candy & indian foods that taste like veggie soup. MANY THANKS for awakening my tastebuds to something TASTY besides homemade hotwings & chilli.
