This is really amazing! So easy to put together and the flavours are just fantastic. Do not omit the yoghurt at the end; it adds a nice creaminess to the dish. I used one seeded jalapeno pepper and the dish was quite hot (which is just fine by us, but the kids got some sandwiches instead :)) I did not have curry leaves but did not miss them. We will make this recipe again for sure. Served with basmati rice cooked in chicken broth with a bit of saffron threads. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR
Tried this even tho people said it was really tomatoey i disagree i made this whilst watching the gordon ramsey vid on youtube. He does everything except he sort of chars all of the ingredients before he puts the can of tomatoes. It comes out like a black matted paste. Try looking at his massala sauce recipe on youtube first gives you a good idea of what it should look like during the different stages of cooking.
This has a very strong tomato taste to it. I was craving the Indian food of Britain, and this doesn't taste anything like what I was hoping for. It was still good, which is why it got 3 stars instead of 1, but it wasn't what I was craving.
Marvellous, made for just DH and I and I note that he has hogged the leftovers for HIS lunch, grrr!! I made it with prawns, adding them to the sauce and allowing to simmer gently until they were just cooked. An aromatic curry that complements rather than overwhelmed, I agree with Moor Driver that the sauce is divine all by itself! Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe, Noo, a new favourite!
Exactly what I was going for. Wonderful and easy!
Yummy, but you should count on that "tomatoey" taste. I like it this way, but still, I'm gonna try to balance amount of choped tomatoes and tom. puree next time.
I love Indian food, but am not that huge of a fan of British-Indian food... but this was very good. It has a nice depth of flavor and was really spicy, although I used a minced habanero pepper in it. I also left out the curry leaves, but would like to try the recipe again if I can ever find them at the store. Instead of rice, I served this over your Bombay fried potatoes, and the dishes paired perfectly together! [Made & Reviewed for PRMR]
I was looking for a sauce recipe to make paneer tikka masala, and I used this recipe for it. It had a great flavor. I did not add the yogurt since I was not looking for a creamy sauce. Blended with my immersion blender before adding my browned paneer cubes and simmering. Will definitely make again- will try it with the chicken or maybe some shrimp. It was great with the paneer! Thanks Noo!
I really thoroughly enjoyed this dish. Of course, I made some changes: I omitted the chicken (I'm a vegetarian) and instead used tofu. I also didn't bother with all the food processing, so just fried the onions/garlic/ginger/chilli and then added the ingredients for the sauce and just simmered with the tofu while waiting for the rice to cook. I found it to be absolutely delicious! It had a strong tomato taste, but I could also taste the spices which was good. Will definitely be making again in the future.
