    This chicken recipe is so good. It is nice and tangy--the flavor of yogurt and tomatoes is so well blended. A must-try recipe by chef Sanjeev Kapoor.

      Well, this was an interesting experience! I don't think I have ever cooked a dish with so many spices in it, and I have made Thai curry paste from scratch. The flavor, also, perhaps because of the black cardamom, which is a first for me, is quite different from the curry I am accustomed to eating. Still, I think it's nice, and am looking forward to trying it again, and adding a few personal touches. There is one problem with this recipe, and that is that the ingredients are not listed in the order in which they are used, making it confusing at times. It would be nice if they could be re-ordered. Overall, though, this deserves the 5 stars. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
