The Picky Chef says :

This is a wonderful dish that could surely be classified as indian comfort food at its best-- simple, flavorful, healthy yet rich tasting. I added 1/2 tsp of curry as I happened to have a very good one in my pantry and couldn't resist. My 9 year old daughter (who loves Indian food) also gave it a thumbs up. I left out the heat this time (with her in mind) but will surely add it the next time around.
