“This is based on a recipe from the vegetarian recipe book "Cooking with Kurma" Ive made it many times over the years, and have changed it around a bit, mainly by adding more veggies. I always make this whenever anyone in the family is feeling a little under the weather. I use a huge amount of garlic and ginger in mine though (as in 2 huge pieces of ginger and an entire head of garlic, if not more) I have mellowed it a bit for this recipe!”
