      Great chicken dish! I don't care for onions so left them thinly sliced instead of mincing them into the sauce. I used Homemade Curry Powder (Homemade Curry Powder) and the sauce was richly spiced and the chicken was tender and delicious. I will increase the pepper flakes or add some cayenne to my curry powder next time to turn up the heat a bit. We enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2010 Event (recommended by Mia in Germany)

      Wonderful, easy curry! I had leftover curry powder Ceylon Curry Powder from ZWT and wanted to make a different curry, and this is what my research produced. As I can't have dairy, I used coconut milk with one teaspoon tart tamarind puree, and instead of cornstach I used arrowroot. Will make this again - thanks for posting!
