The dish looks / tastes great! My 19 y.o. tried it, as he is trying to learn a few authentic indian dishes so that he can cook something for himself at Uni. He was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. I told him to cut down on quantities of all the spicy ingredients and it was perfectly suited to his taste. I feel that it needs a squeeze of lemon juice to enhance it further. Thanks for sharing.
