I added Kasoori methi & lime. It tastes really good! I stuck to chopping giner & garlic separately. Great recipe once again...thankyou

Very nice recipe. Subtle flavors. I used ginger-garlic paste in place of chopped ginger and garlic. Also, cook the sauce/gravy down thoroughly-then add the potatoes. Wait until the very end for the peas as they will be overcooked if added sooner. This is a slow simmer-type recipe that is worth the time required to make it. It came out "restaurant quality". I will make this again and again!
