  1. not a vegetarian by any means, but decided to give it a go.
    no rosemary, so put in some oregano, also put in a good amount of chilli flakes at the start as well.
    i think it would work well with smoked paprika, that will be for another day though, also never bothered with the yoghurt at the end.
    enjoyed

  2. A rather confusing mix of flavourings. I had a quick scan and thought, healthy ingredients, rosemary, wine, must be Mediterranean. Then saw garam masala. Didnt have wine so used veg stock, left out rosemary, used coriander instead of parsely and added a bit of paprika. Next time wd use the rosemary and wine and omit garam masala, would taste better.
