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

  2. When oil is hot, add spices.
  3. Add the onion to wok and stir-fry 5-7 minutes.

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.
