"This tastes exactly like the dish that I always get at my favorite Indian restaurant. I made it up one day and everyone was shocked. It has quite the mix of ingredients, but they all play a key role in getting the taste and consistency that I was looking for."

Great recipe! I used fresh spinach and halved the red pepper flakes. I also used mushroom broth instead of chicken broth. Tastes great over rice! Next time - I will puree in the blender and s...
