Made two batches of this recipe. First one was too mild for everyone who tried it but I doubled the spices and yogurt for the second one and it was great! Read More

Definitely needed altering as others suggested in their reviews. I double the spices and yoghurt and added 2 t each of Turmeric and Chicken Stock. Also needed to add about 2 cups of warm water to cook the potato. Was really nice and filling with the alterations. Read More

Very very good. I used garlic powder instead of paste increased the yogurt and also added red chiles finely diced for extra kick. Note that you had add the potatoes to the chicken mixture sooner than the recipe says as a way to save time. Read More

I love this recipe and have made it for a few years to rave reviews of friends and family. Like many other reviewers however I usually double the yogurt and spices. It's also worked well with the addition of chickpeas and a couple of diced tomatoes. Read More

This is such an easy and delicious meal. I agree with another review I saw though. We intend to double the spices and yogurt the next time we make it. Read More

I altered this recipe a little because I had to use the spices I had at home. I used garam masala some sambar powder and ground ginger. I made this for my bf who is from Pakistan and he liked it ok. He only liked the chicken but he is a picky eater. I had to add MUCH more spices than the recipe called for probably at least tripled the amount and he said the spices were just right but he likes it very spicy. For the Americanized version I still think it would be better to add a little more spices than the recipe calls for. I also had to use more yogurt at the last minute than it called for to give it a creamier consistency and it still got a little dry. Overall good flavor but double yogurt and spices. Might cook again minus the vegetables as my bf is such a picky eater. Read More

Tasted very good but not a family favorite. Even though it didn't please everyone it was enjoyable. I most likely will not make it again. Read More

Obviously as other reviewers said there needs to be MUCH more spices. I used fresh onion ginger garlic-- all doubled. For more authentic flavors instead of increasing the yogurt I added TONS of coconut milk (otherwise it would be extremely dry). It helped give this dish a great taste. Other spices I threw in were tumeric cinnamon salt & pepper. Still could usa a little more flavor and I would recommend adding something with a little kick. Overall it's a great base for a recipe to make your own. Read More
