  1. I've prepared this recipe today!
    I had to change some ingredients solely because I did it with what was available (like using jackfruit meat instead of tofu) and I've used garam masala instead of cardamom, because it was easier for me to find it.

    But I'm very positively surprised! It has this complex mix of flavors, plus the texture of the basmati rice with the vegetables, star anise mixed with curry… Amazing!

    Thank you for this recipe!
