This is an adapted recipe of Madhur Jafreys. I have had great success with making this recipe for guests. People are always asking for this recipe as they see how quickly I get dinner together and they love how it tastes. I have used ground turkey as a sub for the ground chicken. Also I have used cubed chicken breasts if I don't have ground on hand. I once used leftover Tzatziki sauce and used that in lieu of the yogurt or sour cream and it was also good. The curry powder I use is the Sweet Curry I buy from The recipe is flexible if you want to add 1 cup of cooked/cubed potatoes and/or 1 Cup of frozen peas at the step where you add the tomatoes.

I made this today for a late lunch and enjoyed. I did think it was missing salt and after eating a bowl as is, added some garam masala and onion salt which really enhanced it. Also used ground chicken. Thanks for sharing!

We enjoy Madhur Jaffrey's recipes, and liked the simplicity of this version! I used cubed chicken breast instead of the ground chicken, and added a little ginger & cardamom which were nice additions. Served with rice pilau for a very enjoyable meal. Thanks Chohertz! Made for Easy Does It in the photos forum.
