I loved these. I added kasuri methi (fenugreek) to the mix though, and used tomato puree instead of the tinned tomatoes. My partner was particularly impressed by the minty yoghurt.

Was OK but not great.

This was fine, but I think that was something not quite right with it...I'm not sure if it is whether the garam masala makes it slightly bitter.

Didn't like the yellow yoghurt though.
