Delightful. This went so well with injera bread. I used the turmeric and also added a habanero pepper. I cooked it in a tagine instead of on the stove-top. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Very good. Great side dish and easy enough. The spices don't overpower. Olive oil is great and healthier of course. Read More

I made this as a side dish and followed the recipe. I used olive oil because it's healthier. I also used the turmeric. Dish is mild and the spices don't stand out. It was great for my dad who doesn't like things with a lot of spice. My sons and I added hot sauce. Next time I will add more turmeric and some hot peppers after taking out my dad's portion. Hot pepper oil would probably work well too. Read More

This was surprisingly, exactly like I have had in restaurants! We've had it 4 times in the past month. The last time I made it there were no carrots in the 'fridge, so I substituted in cubed butternut squash. It's still delish! thanks for sharing this super easy recipe Read More
