Made this recipe with small changes. I added a whole can (1/2 cup) of tomato paste and a splash of vegtable broth to thin it out. The recipe didn't have curry listed, so I added 1tsp and increased the cumin to 1tsp. The directions called for sugar and I added 1/2 tsp to the recipe. My family loved it, it has a wonderful flavor.
