"This was fantastic! I was trying to find something to cook with my left over cauliflower from a veggie tray and this was perfect. All other ingredients are staple items so I didn't need to buy anything special. My husband ate three helpings!!"

"Super, my whole family loved it. I used fenugreek instead of the curry, and it was still fantastic. Thank you for sharing."
