Quintessinal. My prep time far exceeded the 20 minutes proposed by the recipe, but the stages made sense, and the end result was WONDERFUL! Personally, I would prep the marinade ingredients in the early afternoon so the chicken could come to room temperature. It took little time to do the remaining prep, so cooking could proceed effortlessly. I would rate this as 1-1/2 alarms (using Wick Fowler's chili rating). I perceived the heat coming from the ginger and the red onion; I couldn't pick out the red chili pepper on its own. Will definitely make this again. Made for October 2013 My Three Chefs.
I have been trying Indian recipes for some time and my Indian bf is never quite satisfied. Not this time! He felt it was authentic (despite the fact that I substituted tofu for chicken). Definitely a keeper! Next time, I might use evaporated milk in place of cream to lighten it up a bit.
