Very nice curry, creamy with a rich flavour, and easy to prepare. I subbed shrimps for the chicken, adding them towards the end to poach in the sauce. I did use the cayenne pepper, but did not use the raisins. To add a little body, I added about 200 gr trimmed green beans. We enjoyed this very much, thank you!
