I tried this today, and it came out well. I have prepared this previously but it never tasted this good and it's easy to prepare too. Thank you very much for sharing.

I found that this dish took alot longer to cook than stated and it was really nothing special. On the plus side, I was able to use ingredients that I already had in the cupboards but perhaps should've gone for spicy meatballs instead!

I've always tried doing indian recipes and there always seems to be something missing compared to restaurants but this dish is very easy to do and tastes very authentic
