  1. I tried this recipe tonight and my hubby and I both really enjoyed it. It is very easy to make too which is a plus. I don’t know if you got my note about my husband loving the mushroom and peas recipe, while he doesn’t like peas but he asked that I make it again any time.
    Thank you for your great site and videos. I spend hours, literally, watching them and enjoying it so much.

  2. Manjula Aunty,

    This recipe, like the others, is quite delicious – I especially like the Navaratan Korma. This recipe is a close second favorite, and one thing I have found helps immensely with its preparation, and others that require ground cashew/kaju is the recent popularity of cashew butter! I prefer to use tomato paste over just puree for most dishes, so when I make the dishes I use tomato paste and cashew butter, which cook down nicely before water is added to thin down the pastes to a sauce.

    My Desi friends keep suspecting that I have a nice Indian girl at home when they taste my cooking – they can’t believe that it’s my handiwork, with inspiration from your site (and a couple others, but we are talking about YOUR recipes right now)!

  3. Dear Manjula. I am a fan of your website and recipes. I did want you to know though, that asofetida (hing) does contain gluten. My daughter has celiac disease so I’ve been researching gluten free cooking. Thanks!

    kind regards,

  4. Made this tonight and it was delicious. I happened to have everything on hand which worked out perfectly. Quick, easy and tasty. Love this site. Never thought I would be cooking Indian food. My girlfriend kissed me after making the chana masala.
