This was fantastic! I gave it 4 stars because I had to double the spices. *I also add a little cumin

This was something new and different for us. I wish I would have had peanuts to top it off. Thanks for posting the recipe.

The flavor of the sauce was great, but we only gave four stars because it didn't meld into the meat very well. I had to leave the yogurt out (milk allergy) but we didn't find it too spicy at all even without. Thanks Lisa!
