    LilKiwiChicken's Note:

    Another of my Indian cooking class tutor's recipes. I have a grinder so grind the seeds to make powder as stated, otherwise using store-brought powder is fine. With the chicken, you can easily substitute boneless.

      We enjoyed the masala chicken recipe. It had nice flavor and came out and tender and juciy. I used bone-in chicken breasts and trimmed away the skin. The bone in really does add to the flavor. We served over basmati rice and with Cauliflower Curry as a side dish. Thanks!

      YES! With all those wonderful spices which have become favourites at our house - just knew it was going to be extra good! Not having the coriander leaves on hand I used some flat leaf parsley. Amazed how easily this made up. Used chicken thighs - think I would love this cutting a whole chicken - the bone in makes for flavor - and I could sneak off to the kitchen with the best parts! Delicious served over rice. A belated July review for AUZ/NZ swap.

      We made this for dinner and the only thing I would change is to use boneless chicken next time. VERY authentic tasting and I made is with 4 chili peppers...YUMMY!! Thank you.
