It was a good start. With some changes it was very good. Used 3 fresh medium tomatoes instead of canned tomato and paste. For spices changed it to: 2 tbsp garam masala, 2 tbsp cumin, 1 tbsp ginger, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp yellow curry powder, 1/2 tbsp salt, ~1 tsp cracked pepper, 1 tbsp Essence of Emeril (for heat since the wife doesn't like things too spicy). I used chicken tenders and seared them after coating them in garam masala. Took them out after the sear, diced them and added them back near the end. Added juice and zest of 2 limes and a handful of cilantro at the end. I added cayenne pepper to my plate while my wife took hers with a little yougurt since she hates spicy food. For the rice I toasted the rice first with onion, garlic and ginger, then added about 4c of water for 1.5c of rice. Made it have more of a pilaf texture. Added juice of a lime, cilantro, and frozen peas at the end.
