    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    I made this recently and we loved it. A rich, fragrant, but not overly 'burny' curry. Because we are not great meat eaters, I used half the chicken, the full amount of sauce, and I added a few sauteed shrimps right at the end. If you don't have garam masala, try a curry powder that you like, I do keep roasted garam masala in my pantry. I also let the curry sauce cook for longer than the recipe states, you should never rush a curry if you have the time! I served this over steamed basmati rice. 30 minutes refrigeration time is included in the preparation time. This recipe is taken from The Australian Womans Weekly "New Curries", and the following is how they describe it. "Kenyan cooking is a fusion of East African and Middle Eastern methods known by the name of swahili cooking, a word which identifies the culinary influences of traders arriving by sea from the Arabian peninsula upon the indigenous population. This curry uses the pungency of paprika, coriander and turmeric in the chicken marinade, to complement the green chilli and fenugreek in the curry."

      To start with I cut this back to 2 servings. Used the Garam Masala and all other spices and have to admit to not using the honey and in place of the cream I used fat free liquid coffee creamer which delivers pretty much the same flavor and cooks like cream. The outcome was delicious over brown rice. The dish was milder than I had expected but no less enjoyable than I had expected. Made for For Your Consideration.

      This was a nice subtle curry. I made several alterations to the instructions first I added 2 cups water along with the tomatoes in step 7. In step 5 I placed my chicken in the highest rack under the grill and left for a little longer than 10 until the chicken had some charred bits. I must say I would make the chicken again using the marinade then threading onto skewers and cooking on the BBQ. The flavour was awesome. I added the chicken to the curry before the cream (of which I only used 150ml) and let simmer for about 30 minutes, then I added the cream - re seasoned heated though and skipped the honey.
