Great recipe! Mild nutty flavor, yoghurt and cardamom noticable, delicious with rice and chicken. Suggestions - Salt at table. - Use bay leaf instead of curry leaf if necessary. - Use hot water (to cover) to soak nuts. - Makes about a quart - Use sparingly, save extra in fridge.

This was really yummy. I had to subbed some of the nuts with pinenuts and walnuts, and used turmeric instead of saffron. I cooked some fish in the sauce and served it with rice. The recipe is missing salt, but I added about 2 tsp.
