Hi! Looks like garlic is not mentioned in the instructions. I assume it is to be added in step 1 with the onion? Assuming that to be the case, I proceeded with the recipe. The results are lovely! I did add quite a bit more coconut than that for which the recipe called. That said, the interplay of the sweet coconut and cinnamon with the peas with the fruity note of tomato and earthy underpinnings really left me gobsmacked!

The part I struggle with is how to prevent woody pieces of cinnamon being in the mix - because of the onion I cant put the mix into my spice mill, and because instead I put it into my processor it does not break the cinnamon (okay, I admit I used Cassia bark) up properly. Am I missing a step?

Do you really mean to use 50 gms or inches of cinnamon stick in this recipe? It must be a typo. Please rectify, so that I can try this recipe with correct measurements. Thanks and regards, Ananya Chatterjee
