Thanks for a great recipe. I never had chicken curry before and I looked through countless recipes before deciding on yours, and I'm glad that I picked this one, it is a keeper. The only ingredient that I didn't have was the cardamom, and it's on my shopping list for the next time I go to the store. The other thing that I liked about it is, that it is low carb.. I am diabetic and that is important to me. Delicious, easy and healthy. What more is there to say but thanks again.
DH and I really liked this recipe. I am giving it 5 stars because I thought the spice proportions were spot on, and required no modifications, which is not something I can say about a lot of the other curry recipes I have tried. My only problem with the recipe is that the consistency was very watery and we like it a lot thicker. DH said it appeared to have the right consistency before he added the 1/2 cup of water at the end. Next time, I will add only 1/4 cup or none at all and see how we like it. Thanks, Chia.
