"This traditional Indian dish was suggested to me by my friend from Mumbai. It is creamy and full of flavor and should be served over some kind of carb (rice, potatoes, naan) to absorb and dissimulate the spice. It can be easily done in a vegetarian version by substituting the chicken with potatoes, broccoli, spinach and/or paneer. I garnish it with cilantro leaves and grated cheese." — DOSTANDEN

1 1/2 pounds

This was easy and flavorful. I used fat-free yogurt, so it curdled up when I added it to the oil, but it all worked out in the end when I added the cream. I used three large garlic cloves. I didn't know what to do with the leftover yogurt marinade, so I just discarded it. I added extra garam masala to the chicken while it was browning. Served with Indian Saffron Rice from this site.
It tasted good.
Easy and delicious! I marinated it 24 hrs. The next day, dinner was done in a snap.
It was a big hit! I made this with some modifications and it turned out really delicious. Everyone liked it. I used 200 g of plain yogurt instead of 400 g. I used 2 cloves of garlic instead of one, and 1/2 cup of cream instead of 1/4 cup. I put 1/2 tsp of salt in the marinade, but as it cooked I had to keep on tasting and adding salt. I also add 1/4 tsp of sugar in the marinade. I used black pepper instead of white pepper. Lastly, I marinated it for about 16 hours, and it really worked. I think, though, 1.5 pounds of chicken for 6 serving is too little. Oh, I also added some carrots and green pepper in it. I served with rice on the side. I highly recommend this recipe for those who crave for spice.
It's a simple chicken dish easy to prepare.
Really easy to put together, it satisfies the curry craving.
Excellent! This was worth spending $15 on saffron. The kids complained that it stunk, but they were surprised at how good it tasted. We will definately make this again.
