Very good. I added 1/2 cup of almonds ground in a mortar and pestle to thicken it a little more and add flavor. I read from a review of another Indian recipe that this is the traditional way to thicken in their recipes. I will definitely make this again! Read More

We used homemade masala spices instead of masala paste. It was tasty but a bit thin. Read More

This was the first meal I made using this app. I love this app and I love this recipe. My husband doesn't like spicy so I reduced the spices and added turmeric. Turned out great. My husband loved it! Read More

The flavor profile is great here I used a homemade curry paste. I also prefer using ground almonds as a thickener. Read More

We both really liked it and will have it again for sure. I'm lazy so I did not cut up the chicken into pieces I cooked the 4 breasts whole. Also I could not find masala curry paste and had to use red curry paste instead; however I did add garam masala spice to the dish about 1-1-/2 tsp. I also brined my chicken breasts before I made the dish to ensure juicy tender chicken and it was. I am an Indian cooking fan now. Read More
