Not very hot at all as stated. Also takes far more than 10 minutes to prepare.

Complaining over - in spite of above this is the most simple, aromatic and gorgeous curry recipe ever!

Dead easy to spice up a bit (I add 5 - 7 hot chilies).

Otherwise - THANK YOU for an excellent, simple and 'use time and time again' recipe.

Yum!

This is an absolutely great curry. We changed it by using a little oil instead of the ghee. Also increased the spice, especially the chilli as we like it very spicy and hot. It was best the next day, after heating it from the fridge. We found that the quantity serves more than 4, more like 6 to 8. Served it with brown & white rice, plain naan and cucumber raita. We enjoy Indian very much and will use this as our chicken base curry. Please try it, it is a great receipe.

Oh my!! This is a curry that is packed full of flavour.I reduced the chicken content slightly,and added some par boiled potato chunks ( I love curried potato,and I was a little short on chicken).It was wonderful.I was constantly picking at it from the pot,and had real trouble leaving it alone,it was that good.I didn't think that it was as hot as the title implied.Next time I think that I may spice it up,just a little,but not too much,as I wouldn't want to spoil all those fantastic flavours. This was incredibly simple to make,and very quickly prepared.I served it with steamed rice and Brian's Onion Bahji's.An absolutely fabulous meal Brian.Many thanks x
