      This is a delicious curry dish! The cool yogurt was a great balance to the curry flavors. I think my pan was too hot when I added the yogurt because it curdled, so make sure your pan is on a low heat and your yogurt is room temp before adding it. Nonetheless, the flavor of the chicken and the sauce was delicious - we really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Indeed, a simple recipe with great taste and a smooth creamy texture, very much my sort of curry! I cut my chicken into bite size pieces, prefer it that way, and since we were only 2, I cut back on the chicken but not on the sauce, so had lots of delicious sauce to enjoy with rice :) I did use a thick yoghurt, of a Greek yoghurt texture.
      This was lovely, awalde, thank you, made for PRMR tag game

      This chicken had a really good flavor; however, the yogurt sauce did not turn out as shown in the picture. Perhaps I should have used greek yogurt vs. plain yogurt. I will definitely try this dish again and try greek yogurt since it has a thicker consistency than regular yogurt. Made for the AUS/NZ Make My Recipe Tag, November, 2011.
