EXCELLENT recipe!! Thanks so much Mr. Thumma. I am American. My husband is Indian and likes GOOD food. My cooking skills are not what they should be - especially when it comes to cooking Indian food. You taught on your video so well though that I made the dish and today have one happy, happy husband. He said it was very authentic and it was sooooooo tasty. I made it with ground turkey for the mince, and didn't have any peas so I used fresh green beans from my garden. I put the beans in close to the end so they remained a bit crunchy (we like crunchy) and it was just great. Thanks for making a novice shine!!

I love it! The spices are wonderful--no wonder Indian food is so good! This gentleman's delivery is great and I love his "pinches."

Oh, and I want to be clear, I really do love his "pinches." Cooks should understand that measurement are estimations and suggestions, not law. Everything should be done to taste.
