    Brian Holley's Note:

    This is a curry with a thick and nutty sauce. The recipe was passed to me by Mrs. Shirodkar, he wife of a famous doctor in Bombay. My thanks to her again, for a wonderful dish with not too many ingredients.

      Aroma Aroma Aroma, the whole house smelt divine. I think I didn't cook the spices long enough as I was worried about it being burnt so mine didn't turn out very black. However this didn't take away from the dish it was absolutely yummy. Changes I made was used four cloves of garlic, had an important meeting the next day ;) and used skinless died chicken. Thank you Brian H
