This is a truly superb SUPERB curry, very much in the top league. The use of yogurt, cream, and ground almonds combine wonderfully with the spices to make a medium hot dish. You'll cook this time and time again.

Having not been in touch for a while, I decided to try one of your new recipes, and I liked the idea of the ingredients but only had chicken to hand. Pretty damn good my friend. I know that lamb, especially on the bone would give this a "richer" flavor, but I am very pleased with the result. Having noted a previous comment, I would advise adding water only "as necessary". This way there is no chance of it being "runny". I added a little more chilli powder, to my own taste, and its a VERY GOOD curry that results. Keep it up Brian.

The whole family liked it. The flavor is very nice, smooth and MILD. The sauce was a bit runny for me so I added a little flour dissolved in some cold water at the end to thicken it. My one year old could eat it without any problem it was so mild, but I prefer my Indian food to have more of a kick than this. I would definitely make it again, but next time I will increase the green chilies in the yogurt sauce to 5, and add a teaspoon of cayenne. Overall, a great recipe. THANKS!

Took a bit of time to make, but was worth it. Not too hot either.
