I am crazy about Indian food, so this idea really appealed to me. It was very good, but the first thing I want to warn everyone about is the green cardamom pods: DO NOT PUT THEM IN LOOSE, as the recipe states! Either steep them in the coconut milk first & strain them out, or put them in a cheesecloth bundle. It was VERY difficult to find them all after cooking, as the chopped onions look an awful lot like cardamom pods when everything is covered in sauce!
Secondly, this recipe needs about double the amount of chicken, IMHO. It was almost like soup -- not such a bad thing, though, if you're serving it with rice - I only had naan this time, but next time, I will definitely make rice. :)
Having said all that, honestly, the Patak's Butter Chicken Sauce is pretty much the same thing, but a lot less work (granted, more $, in the long run).
