      Excellent! I'm always looking for different ways to make chicken curries. I used a little extra yogurt and added more than a tbsp of cream at the end instead of using it as a garnish. I made this 2 days ago and plan on making it again tomorrow for dinner guests!

      This was great! Very tasty. The tablespoon of chili powder makes it spicy but not too spicy if you're used to spicy food. That seemed like a lot but it was OK. Very yummy!!
