Quite a dry curry so don't eat with rice. Fabulous with Parathas stuffed with vegetables or just ordinary Chappatis.

Kevin!! What an amazing finger-licking delicious recipe this one is!! I made it for lunch this afternoon. I doubled the recipe as I had a 1kg 200gms whole chicken with me which I cut into bite-sized pieces and then proceeded with your fantastic recipe. The only extra ingredient I added was 2 1/2 tsps. of turmeric powder to change the colour basically. I used 1/2 cup of ginger paste(assuming that 'pulped' ginger meant basically ginger paste). The chicken was ready within no time and that was really appreciated by all who enjoyed it. Served it with chappatis and they were so happy. Thank You, Kevin!
