The following was made for portions for two people so multiply accordingly – it’s really simple and took no time at all – this was hot for me so adjust spices to your taste on chilli, paprika and garam masala.

Lovely with brown rice. A very economical vegetarian / vegan meal
Followed the recipe above to the letter and it is very good. Very simple to make and very filling. I added a couple of extra ingredients like a red pepper and a green chilli, just for colour really. As for it being a hot dish, well not for me it wasn’t. Next time I make it I will add a lot more of the spices to make the dish quite a bit hotter/spicier. Overall a very good dish, which is easy to make.
