    Dragonfyre's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by an Indian Colleague at work. He is desperately trying to get me out of cooking Indian from a Jar. I played around with his qtys used thighs instead of breasts and added the onions. Even he was pretty impressed with this effort. Its a family favourite now.

      You did a good job playing around with this one-it's yummy. I upped the chilli a bit to suit us and added 1 teaspoon of salt, otherwise made as written. Recipe would be improved for other cooks by editing a few ingredients into the order they are used though.
