    Waylando's Note:

    Though not necessarily authentic, this curry is as good or better than anything i've ever had in a restaurant. Pieces of meat and/or vegetable are simmered in a fragrant sauce thickened with onions, garlic and ginger. Great over rice or accompanied with a piece of warm naan bread.

      My wife and I were looking for a recipe for chicken masala after going to our local folk festival this summer and decided to try this. Although not exactly what we were after, this was still great! The one we had, had a bit of sweet to eat. We loved it though and would def do this again!

      Excellent chicken curry. I used 1 1/2 cups of water for the sauce and it was perfect consistency for our tastes. When I first tasted this after the initial simmering, I though that the spices still tasted a bit 'raw'; however it certainly improved to a five star rating with some sitting time. I definately recommend using the coriander and yoghurt. Served with home made roti, saffron rice and kachoomber - thank you for a wonderful meal.

      Love this curry. It's so easy to make and so full of flavour. I used Madras Curry Powder and made a few minor changes. Added 2 chopped fresh chilies at step 3, and an extra 1/2 cup of water at step 5 (we like sauce). As suggested, I also added the optional coriander (cilantro) and yogurt. The heat was mild, so fire lovers could use 3-4 chilies. Thanks for a great recipe.
