This is one of the first Indian dishes I made. It is easy and quick. Fresh or frozen peas may be used.

This is a nice clean and simple side dish for an Indian meal. Some of the reviewers are wanting it to be something else. Please note that the recipe calls for cumin seed not ground cumin which would definitely overpower this dish if mistaken. I made this recipe as written salting to taste and enjoyed it very much with Steve's Chicken Korma from this site. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

my husband is Indian and this just didn't have enough "kick" for us. If you like it mild then it should be good for you. Read More

way too much cumin. if you try this I suggest cutting the cauliflower as small as possible. it was difficult to toss the seeds and oil to get the vegetables fully covered. I might try it again. Read More

This was alright. Be careful though when it says the seeds will pop they aren't kidding! They are like little tiny molten BB's if you leave them too long! Read More

Made this last night with Chicken Makhani (Mitch Ferguson) and it was delicious! I didn't have cumin seeds so I added ground cumin when I added the vegs and gave it a stir. I can't wait to try it with the cumin seeds. Thanks Read More

I was using up leftovers so I tried this with shredded cabbage in place of the peas. It was very very good but I will experiment with adding a little "heat" to it next time. Read More
