    This was amazing! I added a little more garam masala, another garlic clove (both crushed)and a few thai chiles while it simmered, we subscribe to "If you're not sweating, you're not eating." I replaced the rice with cous cous and left it separate. Wrapped it all up in rotis. It was so good my hubby is already asking me to make it again and it has only been 2 days! ADDITIONAL NOTE: I combined all the dry spices in a plastic container and made enough for 6 batches of chicken. Now when I want it I just need to scoop it out!

    Very delicious! Thanks for sharing. I didn't have a bay leaf, though, so I omitted it and used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. However, we followed the spices and everything else to a T. I didn't think it was "spicy" and I'm very sensitive to heat (jalapenos make my eyes water). Perhaps people who thought it was aren't accustomed to the many different spices in Indian dishes. I also agree with another reviewer- very adaptable! We've made this a few times now and I keep coming back to look at this recipe again.
