    RGVeggie's Note:

    I adapted this recipe from a chicken recipe in an Indian cookbook. It's very flavorful and just the right amount of spice for my taste- but you can always make it spicier. It's my new favorite way to get protein!

      This was delicious! I have made it a couple times now, and the second time around I used Quorn brand fake chicken instead, because I don't like the taste of seitan. It turned out great! I also added some fresh cilantro, and squeezed a little lime over the top when served. Yum!

      Yum, this is great. I kept mostly to the recipe except that I used red chile flakes instead of the green chiles. Loved the spice mixture and how quicjk and easy it was to make. Thanks for posting!

      This was very good! Served with quinoa. I made it with homemade seitan, and omitted the chili because of the kids. The flavor was very bright, all our tongues were numb after eating it... weird. But we all enjoyed it. Next time I will cut back on the ginger and the lemon juice. Thanks for sharing!
