Smelled and tasted yummy! Forgot to buy the yoghurt, those sensitive to spice will definitely need it as the dish does have a bit of a kick. Only changes made were an extra clove of garlic and the addition of a courgette. Perhaps we're greedy but there was nowhere near enough for 4; we probably got just about 3 portions from it but they weren't big portions even then! Will cook again but up the amount of peppers and definitely still do the courgettes.

Delicious! We made this for 2, but used the whole amount of spice & oil mix. The almonds weren't necessary, maybe next time just sprinkle toasted flaked almonds on top

This was very yummy. Although, there really wasn't much point to using the almonds as the spices overpowered the taste of the almonds. May as well save the calories for some chocolate afterwards :)

I followed the recipe to the letter, and it was lovely. Just the right amount of spice flavour (I fed it to my 3 young children too), and very easy to prepare. I got it all ready and then set the oven to turn on automatically, so no messing about at all. Didn't bother with the yoghurt, but it would have been nice.

VERY tasty dinner. Can't imagine substituting coriander for any other herb. Lovely! For an extra kick we dropped a dollop of nandos piri hot sauce into the yogurt.

We had this tonight and my husband and I really enjoyed it. Not sure that the quantities would have been enough if it had been for four. Having read some of the other comments I doubled the spices and added a chopped chilli as we like quite spicy food. I will make again.

Completely delicious! Serves four? Or just two piggies...
I'm intolerant to onion and garlic so I used carrot instead, and used red and orange peppers for colour variety. I didn't have the spices so I used garam masala, normal paprika, cinnamon and mustard seeds which came out nicely anyway. Served on a bed of lettuce, cucumber and avocado with lemon juice as dressing, with a dollop of low fat creme fraiche as I didn't have any Greek yogurt.

Very nice.Mid week I do not faff so everything went in (extra oil and a couple of turn- a- rounds/bastings) for an hour and a half at once.Almonds over 10 minutes from end made a world of difference I think.Didn't bother with yogurt as bloke not keen.Three black garlic cloves.

I am rating this recipe with three stars because of the long time in the oven it takes. It could be done boiling the potato wedges and then adding them up when finishing to sautee all the other ingredients sautee in a pan.
Actually the spices (cumin, fennel seeds and paprika) would taste much better if fried first.
I added three garlic cloves and a teaspoon of mustard seeds. I used home made soured cream instead of Greek yoghurt (I cannot find it easily in Brazil).
Next time I will use a lime instead of a lemon and coriander instead of parsley.

All in all, it is a very good, tasty, recipe, but made in a pan as if you were making a curry you can cut short the cooking time by more than a half.

Absolutely delicious! Will make again for sure. The natural yoghurt condiment really makes this dish special, so please don't skip it :-)

Made this for a Sat eve meal. All the family loved it! Lots of gutsy flavour alongside the sweetness of the red onion - Delicious - Forgot to add the yoghurt but don't think it really needs it. Served with fruity cous cous. Will definately do this again!

I to added much more garlic in whole cloves, as well as a copped chilli it needed it. as on it's own there was something missing. I know to some bread is a bad word but hubby and I had with crutsy bread and it was yummy ;0)

I loved the recipe when I first made it then I changed it: I left out the potatoes and added sweet white onions as well as red onions, red peppers and artichokes [both from jars] as well as fresh red peppers and a few chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Serve it with rice - brown rice is particularly good. Friends love it and I cook it often, and the left overs make a great lunch. When buying chicken think about animal welfare - not only is it more ethical but it is so much more tasty.

I really enjoyed this!! Except i kept having to add salt... Next time i will add more salt before I pop it in the oven!
I didnt use almonds(we are allergic to them), or add the Greek yogurt(I'm not a fan) but I added sweet potato and butternut!! It was a really good healthy meal! Will definately be making this again! Might just try it with yogurt next time.

Had it at a friend's house for the first time. I thought it was full of flavour. I have just bought all the ingredients to do it myself' I liked it so much' and appears so easy to make.

Great dish, might add more garlic next time. Hubby wasn't that keen on the yogurt, but I loved it. Will certainly cook this one again.

I agree with Lexi - I didn't think this was great. Although others I made it for enjoyed it, I thought that the veg was too oily and that it lacked something. Perhaps I should've used more garlic, or something. Made Mixed Berry Charlotte for dessert (magazine-only at present) and was bit disappointed with that too. Never mind.
