Loved this recipe. I also added a dash of dried crushed chillies just for an extra kick. I used tortilla wraps instead of chapatis.. Made these along with some other breakfast dishes on this website- the roasted tomatoes one and the posh baked beans - for a special champagne brunch with friends & these were wolfed down and enjoyed by everyone

Tasty and quick for a weekday or weekend supper. Colours make for an appealing presentation too. Spices as per the recipe were OK.
