    This is an insanely easy and delicious recipe. I loved this recipe so much I signed up to write a review because there wasn't one! I did reduce the amount of cinnamon by a half a tsp and I reduced the amount of cloves to 1/4. I served it over brown basmati rice and I did make the cucumber yogurt dip to go with it which I think is key. It was a tiny little bit too salty I used kosher salt might reduce that next time and it's pretty spicy so if your a wimp I'd cut down the Cayenne. SO GOOD!!
