      As written I felt this curry was a bit strong flavored. It wasn't bad, just a little too much garam masala for our liking. Next time I'll decrease it to 2 tsp and perhaps add it earlier in the cooking so the flavors have time to calm a bit. I didn't have whole coriander seeds or red chilies, so I used 1 tsp coriander powder and 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes. It was a bit spicy, I'll decrease the pepper next time. I used boneless thighs, so it cooked very quickly. It was also very quick and easy to make.
