    Tulip-Fairy's Note:

    In Madhur Jaffery's Indian Cookery, lamb or beef was recommended but I have done it with chicken before now, and it was just as nice.

      You are a star, Julie for posting this recipe, of course the spices you sent me helped, it was a great curry the best Ive ever made. I do miss Indian food as its not available were we live, but this dish cured my cravings. Thanks for posting this recipe.<br/><br/>Chris

      Just made this for dinner with boneless chicken thighs and wow it is ever good. I used smoked paprika and threw in some potatoes (best to par-cook them ahead of time so they cook through during the process) and frozen peas. Very easy as most Indian recipes I've made in the past call for grinding the spice mix together, in this case most everything is whole spice. I typically order rogan josh at restaurants as a staple and this one is as good if not better than any restaurant version I've had. I highly recommend this recipe.
