I gave this recipe to my husband as it was his turn to cook. He followed it to the Tee. We just had no tomatoes so added a few cherry tomatoes. It turned out excellent. Was a bit spicy but thats due to the tomatoes not being enough. tasted just like eating at a Muniyandi Hotel :-) Just loved it..was very easy to cook as well.
