    Very popular dish. You will like this one, yogurt, cream and almonds make this a bit special. I have cooked this many times always with success, there's never any left over.

      I was looking for an easy to make but tasty recipe getting ready for all the cooking I have to do for the Thanksgiving. This was a breeze to make and so delicious! One pan cooking - how simple is that. I accompanied this with ready made garlic naan and it was perfect. I always have to worry about food not being too hot for my husband as he does not like hot foods, but this was not hot, just wonderfully aromatic. I made this recipe for 2 servings and followed the recipe except used chicken thighs and also added some komatsuna (Japanese greens) to boost the nutrient level as well as color. Thank you Brian H for introducing us to Balti cooking. We are converts!

      Ok Brian, this time I followed to the letter, well almost!! Made fresh Garam Masala to add in.Just added a little less butter, but what the hell? Simply mindblowing! Who would eat in a restaurant after tasting this? Once again, superb!

      We enjoyed this thank you Brian. I cooked the onions quite a bit longer than suggested as I find they often don't cook any more when mixed with tomatoes. I used the coriander as we love it and subbed thigh fillets for the breasts.
