A beautifully fragrant and spicy chicken curry.

Very close to a 5 star recipe. The only thing we really didn't like about it was too much turmeric. Turmeric has a very earthy flavour and a bitter aftertaste, and 1 teaspoon would have been enough. I will make this again, as it was simple and promises to be delicious. It also needed a generous teaspoon of salt.
