I was looking for a dish for dinner I could make and serve in a short time, without much trouble. This one, after I had purchased the ingredients I lacked, worked pretty well. Somehow I missed buying the onion seed, and I thought I already had chili powder - but did not. So those ingredients were left out. Then, I only had fruit-on-the-bottom style yogurt so I used that (black cherry). The dish still seemed quite 'authentic', and tasty. My wife (who doesn't like 'spicy', and complained at first about all the seeds) ate a second helping.

I made this recipe, and it turned out good. I had a half bell pepper (capsicum), so I added it too. I think it lacked a little flavor, so may be next time I will add a chopped green chili with the onion. Rating it four stars because of that, otherwise a great recipe. Very simple to prepare.

The can curd make it a tad tangy, so use fresh curds and add a spoon of milk. Got the antidote from an expert chef! Think it'll work.
