Tried this and it was very tasty. Very easy to cook as well. The reason am not saying its excellent is that the proportions were not right. I used 2 cups chopped onions, 2 cups diced potatoes, 4 cups chicpeas..1.5tsp chilli pwdr, 4 tbsp coriander powder. The measuring cup I used was the one supplied with the rice cooker.
