This is very delicious and a good thing to cook when you're going to be puttering around near the kitchen to check on the progress. I made this exactly as written except that I used yukon gold potatoes. Served over white basmati rice with steamed green beans and some plain yogurt. It's pungent and spicy, but that's the way we like it.
Indian-Spiced Pork in Tomato Sauce
Pita bread or basmati rice would be good with this saucy dish. Toasting the whole spices before adding them to the other ingredients intensifies their flavors.
