friederike from Berlin,

Actually 3.5 stars - 4 from DH, 3 from me.

It tasted fine, but I thought it was a little bland texture-wise, it all seemed to be one big mush (it wasn't mushy, but I would have preferred the cauliflower florets to retain some bite, for example). Maybe adding a few chopped roasted nuts might help. I planned to add frozen peas, but forgot; I'm not sure adding them for the last few minutes would have cooked them long enough anyway. I also worried if this dish would be cooked within the given time frame, and it did.

I didn't have a 'mild curry' (I guess this is supposed to be one of those bland, non-descript spice mixes you can get everywhere), so I used 1.5 tbsp garam masala, 1 tsp turmeric and 1/4 tsp salt. DH later complained that it was too acidic, and when I couldn't come up with any really acidic ingredient (except for tomato concentrate, I guess?), he thought that maybe I should have used more salt. Point taken. I also omitted the pinch of cayenne, though adding that probably would have worked well, too.

One thong I enjoyed by this dish is that it is a one pot-dish, meaning that you don't need to make rice or anything else, and you don't even produce that much cookery ware that needs to be washed.

We served this with yoghurt stirred with mint and oil (Greek yoghurt would have been better).

Edited a few days later:
Nah, terrible. Not worth it.

I have made both the original and the light versions of this. I didn't notice much difference with the light version, so that is my preference. The first time I made this, my spouse thought it was way too hot so I usually tone it down a bit. The main negative with this recipe is that I end up with a dried/burnt crust on the bottom of my pressure cooker that is difficult to remove without a lot of soaking. This recipe doesn't have a lot of liquid and I have an electric stove.
