By: spatula1 - 2009-03-04 great recipe - i tried the evaporated milk & it really worked. i also added a bit of paprika & a bit of ground coriander.
By: seonz - 2009-01-06 Nice, but waaay too much cummin! Only needs a small amount.. I could only have half a bowl then I started to feel sick!
By: mckenzin - 2008-09-06 Yummy! I added Lite n'' Creamy Evaporated milk instead of whole milk which made it really creamy. This added about 30 extra calories per serve but heaps more calcium & protein. I''ll definately be making this one again.
