This is my husband's favourite meal. It is so tasty and smells wonderful while cooking. We serve this over rice.

I made this as directed, finished it, tasted it and then added 1 teaspoon of red chili pwder. It was good, but a bit lacking in flavour compared to the curries we like. I added both the large and medium onion as required, but felt this was too much-one large would have done for us. I know not all curries are "wet" but felt this one was overly dry. Still, it was a good, subtle chicken dish and certainly worth the 4 stars.
