      I made this for my hubby & sister last night, and we all LOVED it! We all love Indian food, and this was truly amazing! My only 2 alterations were that I couldn't find nigella seeds, so I left them out. Also i ended up having to cook it in the crock pot, so my cooking method was slightly different. after the marinating stage, I just threw it all in the crock pot for a couple of hours, and the meat was so tender, and the flavours all really came together. Great recipe, thanks for sharing it! [Made for the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap Sep 08]
