I have never been a huge curry fan, but I enjoy Indian flavors. I found this recipe and was very excited to make it. It turned out great! I made it mildly spicy, which was perfect for me. This is really yummy with lots of flavor.

My husband is Pakistani so I used more authentic spices but everything else was perfect to keep me in my points!
