This is a good curry dish. It also looks very pretty...good enough for company! Serve it with sweet and/or spicy chutney! Although the recipe says it serves 4, I think it serves 6. You could also use this recipe for curried shrimp by substituting 1 1/4 lbs shelled and deveined shrimp. Enjoy!

This dish was absolutely delicious! I did cut it down and basically estimated the amounts, a dash of this and a splash of that, but the ens result was outstanding! Made for Zaar Stars, 2013
I made this pretty much as directed with a couple of changes. I started out with a deli rotisserie chicken and shredded the chicken. I used home made chicken broth and basmati rice. Pretty simple and absolutely good tasting! Thanks breezer for another keeper. Made for ZWT8 - India.
I love one pot dishes, and really enjoyed making and eating this :) I did slightly pre-cook the cauliflower, and let the peas defrost in a little water before using. I used basmati rice and didn't drain my canned tomatoes. Overall this was a nice curry, especially for people who dont enjoy hot or spicy curry. Thank you Breezermom, much enjoyed! Made for I Recommend tag game.
Forgot to add that I did take your suggestion of shrimp and gently cooked some in garlic bautter, adding them to the curry when serving, as my daughter won't eat the shrimp! very nice!
