I followed this recipe exactly as written. It was way too sweet and tasted flat. I have a very low tolerance for salt in my food but even I had to add salt to my portion and my children's portions. I tried also adding yogurt and fresh cilantro, which helped make it a bit more palatable, but still, I don't think I'll make this again.

This is quite tasty and easy to make. However, I added more spice. I also felt it needed something extra, like chickpeas? or naan? I'm not sure what it was but something was definitely missing.
