I made this today, modifying it per another review, adding more garam masala, curry powder & 2 T of brown sugar. I also added diced green peppers when I added the tomatoes. Otherwise, I made it per the original recipe. I served it over brown rice rather than on rolls, since my experience is that sloppy joes are SLOPPY!! I served my own homemade bread with it so we DID get our bread!! We loved it!! will definitely make again!! Very good!!

4 stars ONLY after I doctored it up.
Made as directed, this is incredibly sour and bland i.e. only sour and no spice. I added more cumin, more garam masala, some curry powder, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, and two heaping tablespoons of brown sugar. Now, it's pretty darn good. As with all spices, make sure that the cumin, garam masala, and curry powder are not from jars that have been in our cupboards for years. These spices, garam masala in particular, tend to fade pretty dramatically with age.

Keep in mind that brown sugar is used quite often in Indian cooking. In this case, something needs to balance the juice of two limes.
