“My mom use to make this when we were vegetarians, it came from the New Vegetarian Cuisine cookbook. (IBN:0-87596-168-1) However, I did modify the recipe as I'm not allowed to have certain ingredients due to being pregnant. I will include those but will put optional beside them. Either way tastes great! And is very easy to make, and leaves the house smelling like curry yum!”
