This is an awesome "everyday" Indian dish. The person Rumshack74 who gave this a poor rating must not have used proper spices. Or maybe she was expecting normal Indian food to taste like resturant food? There is no way a dish with 1 table spoon of garam masala can be lacking in flavour! And I don't know of any Indian who uses "curry powder" one finds in non-Indian grocery. It has disgusting flavour!! Anyway, I recommend you not pay attention to her review and try this recipe!!!!!
I'm sorry to give this recipe such a low rating but it had absolutely NO flavor. I followed the directions to the letter. In order to save the dish, I had to triple the amount of spices, added some curry powder, chicken broth instead of water and salt. I don't like rating a recipe unless I have great things to review. Unfortunately, this recipe was such a dissapointment, I wanted to share my experience. I wish I could have enjoyed it more.
this is one of the best chicken dishes ever. incredibly flavorful. my son is home from college and his best friend in college is Indian. they eat a lot of Indian food. when I made this, we all agreed that it was tastier than anything we had had in awhile. almost too easy to make. all my seasonings were the regular dried variety. I add lots of Cayenne pepper. we like it real real hot at my camp.
This is one of the best "curry" dishes I have ever made. The family loved it and I am already craving to eat it again. I skipped the ghee and had to use powdered garlic and ginger but it was still awesome!
Make sure your spices are FRESH!!! I tried it a second time with a new batch of Garam masala and it made all of the difference. Also used skinless chicken thighs. Good left overs too!!!
Great recipe. I enjoyed it. The flavours were great and the sauce was nice. Easy to make with not that many spices required. Don't forget to add the salt!
Very good flavor. I used less water so that it was less soupy. Recommended
Great recipe, it has a lot of flavour without being over powering. I used fillet instead of legs because I hate chicken on the bone.
Because the gravy is so thick it reheats well & you can easily use the meat on a salad cold.
