This was amazing. I tested it for lunch to try it out before making it for others, and I enjoyed it so much I ate the whole recipe. The only additions were some finely diced onions, and I use ground cumin instead of the seeds. I was looking for a way to use up my turnips from the garden, and this is going to be a staple from now on.

Fabulous recipe. So simple and yet such great results. I added some chopped onion along with the Ginger garlic pastes. And avoided the Cumun powder... just used the seeds.
