This was a real surprise for me....really coconut and banana with chicken...curry and all works together very well. I used Garam Masala for the garam marsala.....I just ratcheted the recipe down to a very small amount. This is easy to make and quite tasty. I served it over rice. Squeezing the lime on top really makes a difference! Try this one.

Very quick to put together - the banana was a nice sweet touch. I only put in 1 tablespoon of curry because of the kids, but they all loved it. A great dish for the family
