A different style of curry from the norm. I recommend this as a good curry for those who like a full on flavoured dish.

Well Brian this could be a masterpiece! I just cocked up a critical stage and achieving my potential as a good chef took a knockback. In the end it was great but unlike other dishes I think the timing of Garam Masala is essential. I forgot to add at frying stage, which normally does not matter. I also used old powder. This too is critical in this dish. Finally, I used fillet, and I know the stock flavour was missing. I compensated with extra salt, and added chopped coriander at end. Next time I will be aware of this!! But truly could be a great one! Thanks again!
Full flavor is an understatement. This is a fireworks display on the moon flavor experience. I loved the recipe from just reading it, and seeing that it calls for MUCH more spice than most recipes do. I don't really ever modify BrianH recipes. The only change- I used boneless/skinless thighs- I wouldn't even bother with dry chicken breast in this recipe. I also lessened the amount of oil. I forgot to add cumin SEEDS and so added ground cumin after I'd made the puree. Open the windows though- because you sure can smell this one. :) So delicious- thanks for sharing.
