This dish is a treat for the eyes, and a good side dish, though it could use some enhancement in the seasoning. On its own, it does not seem particularly “Indian” though it would certainly fit into an Indian-themed meal. And will grace almost any meal. Definitely worth trying, with perhaps more than the tiny hint of ginger suggested.
