Throw in a handful of fresh coriander and you got a lovely dish.

It'd help to say how many this should serve, and perhaps give metric measurements too (for the rest of the world)

Cup equals 250 ml

I tried this out, didn't have garlic, or ginger... added some garam masala and a little tamarind paste... it was really good
