Tastes delicious! The only thing I changed was instead of cooking the spices and then cooking the chicken, I marinaded the chicken in the spices for a good hour, just to make the taste a little more intense! But a brilliant recipe!
This was a fantastic curry! It's so quick and easy to put together. We loved the smooth, rich flavour. Very well balanced dish. Thanks Brian H!
