    Excellent recipe. Even my husband went for seconds. This was my first time using cardamom pods and the flavor is wonderful. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, and would cut them a little smaller next time to the meat gets flavored all the way through. We had this with homemade naan.

    Great curry thanks Charishma. I used chicken thigh fillets, instead of cutting up a whole chicken, and I think I should have bought 2 bunches of coriander to make up the 2 cups of leaves rather than the 1 I bought, I also increased the salt to 1 teaspoon instead of a half. I went out for drinks with friends today, and although I got home not feeling like cooking, this was so simple to put together and tasted fantastic!
