"Metaphysics is a restaurant where they give you a thirty thousand page menu, and no food." -Robert M. Pirsig

The refrigerator light goes on...

I love this side dish. This version is a bit mild, with the heat of the pepper not coming through much at all, so if you want to make it a bit spicier, add some more peppers.

There are versions of this recipe, like one I had in London, that call for tomatoes. That does change the character of the dish. It's not better or worse, really, but if you do use a can of no salt added tomatoes, you will need to double the amount of coriander, turmeric, and cumin, and a touch of honey will help balance the acidity.
