    I’ve made this a few times, with and without meat. It’s a go-to recipe during the week. Great with shrimp and chicken!

    Loved it!. Didn’t come out quite like the picture (was a bit watery) but still was very delicious.

    It was delicious! The only modification was adding sea salt. That really brought the flavor through.

    This dish was easy to make and very tasty. I used a box of crushed tomatoes that had kale and eggplant in it and added half a block of cubed tofu because I didn't have a second can of chickpeas. I will definitely make this again.

    Overall the end result was pretty decent. The taste was a little bit bland, but I will make this dish again, just play around with more spices.

    This was sooooo good and easy to throw together. I made my own Garam Masala spice, My daughter loved it, too! It's also very affordable. And vegan and gluten free. Thanks a million for this recipe I will definitely add it to my dinner rotation!

    Turned out a treat. Was expecting the requirement of various more spices but stuck to the recipe and Garam Masala was sufficient enough.

    Other than being a little bland we all thought it was delicious. Next time I will increase the spice and cut the recipe in half. It was much too much for the three of us to eat in one or two sittings. Through this recipe I found out that I'm allergic to jalapenos so I will have to find a substitute for the next time and there will be a next time.

    Really enjoyed the flavours in this dish and it is so easy to make, and so delicious with rice and homemade chapatti.

    This was amazing! We just switched to vegan and it was so great to get the taste of our favorite Indian dish without the meat or dairy.

    Delicious and easy to make. I substituted one can of the chickpeas with black eyed peas since that was on hand and I made my own blend of garam masala and all tasted terrific.
