Yum, plenty of seasoning, some chilli powder since I forgot to add an actual chilli, some cumin powder too and some butternut squash to pad it out a bit. Smells and tastes delicious.

I saved some for the next day. It tasted much better the second time around.

There was something missing from this recipe. I followed exactly and wasnt hugely impressed. It smelled amazing but the taste was lacking.

This was delicious - the perfect winter warmer. I added half a red chilli to give it a little extra spice and a couple of tablespoons of almond milk which balanced it out nicely and added a touch of creaminess.

Good recipe but needed fresh coriander added to give it a bit more flavour. I also added a green chilli for a bit more heat, scored 8/10 as result
