A very easy and healthy meal

This is a very easy and healthy dish to make. I added sauteed mushroom and peas to it which makes the dish even more colorful and tasty.

Fairly Quick

There was not enough salt or curry. If I hadn't added 2 more teaspoons of salt and curry, the dish would have been very bland. I didn't add any sugar. It didn't need it any way.

Quick, Easy & Tasty

This is a little bit sweet, so I'm glad we used a spicy curry to offset the sweetness. It is hard to stir the sauce in the prepared dish without spilling it.
