This is a great side dish to spice up your vegetables. You can even use left over vegetables of any kind! Goes great with rice. You can alter the red pepper to get the desired spice level as well. My family loves it, and yours will too!

  1. Good--but WAY too much water. I used butternut squash instead of potatoes and it seemed to work perfectly...but only add that 1st 1/4 cup of water then see if you really need to add any more.
  2. I used 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper for lack of peppercorns and eliminated the salt. This has great flavors! I'll be making this again!
  3. Of all the Pakistani recipes I have made this is the only one that actually tastes Pakistani. It was a lot of work to make it but it made a lot. It's very spicy so I would lessen the spices if you don't want it that way. I made this recipe exactly as written.

  5. This recipe was great for a lot of reasons. It was incredibly flavorful and the taste just improved as leftovers and after freezing. It's low-fat low calorie high fiber and packed with vitamins. It's easy to make substitutions using what you have on hand. It's cheap! I made this for my book club when we - Read more ...

The result was flavorful to be sure but the flavors were not balanced correctly. I ate it nonetheless and doused it with yogurt to mask the strong - Read more ...
  8. Yum! This was great and it smells wonderful cooking. I didn't have any peas so I left them out and it was still great. Will definatley make this again and again.
  9. This is outrageously good. Like eating at my favorite restaurant only a lot cheaper.
