    We loved this. I'm only downgrading a star because the written recipe differs from the show. I did use ghee instead of oil since I had some and eliminated the green chili to tone down the spiciness so the kids would eat it. It still packed a bit of a kick and the more sensitive palates asked for yogurt to tone down the heat. Adults really loved it as is.
