Some of the directions seem to be missing..... When browning the onions, make sure the onions are a deep brownish/red color before adding the spices. They should not be white. Also, once you add the tomatoes, let some of the liquid evaporate and cook until the oil separates from the tomaotes before going to the next step. You will see the tomatoes thicken up a bit. miglenova: There is NO curry powder in this recipe. Most Indian curries do NOT use curry powder.

If you're looking a traditional INDIAN curry, then this is it. If, however, you are looking for a RED curry, then I suggest you try a THAI curry. The point of this curry is not the heat but the flavour.

I made several substitutions. I used a Tbsp of garam masala and substituted a Tbsp of a good curry powder for the other spices. Instead of yogurt I used coconut milk as others suggested. I didn't have the lemon or tomato juice (substituted a can of tomato sauce. I always prefer more vegetables so I added chopped carrot, bell pepper and two jalapenos at the same time as the potato and for the last 10 minutes some frozen peas that I had on hand. Many vegetables would go well in this dish. I also added a chicken bouillon cube to the water. Salt was a must add! Awesome recipe! Everyone was begging for more and for thee recipe.
