This mild Indian curry is delicious. A homemade garam masala mix is made, which is used as the spice base for this curry. You can use this recipe and substitute other meat into the dish, if you prefer. Serve with freshly cooked basmati rice.
One minor correction - the word Malai in this recipe is derived from Malay. Reason- this recipe came to Bengal from Malayasia. Bengal, despite its topography and rich culinary heritage, has surprisingly ignored coconut in its recipes. - 02 Feb 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is just awesome! I used to eat this in a nearby Bengali restaurant and was craving it for a while since I can't go there anymore. Made it for dinner tonight and it was just the same. Thank you!!! - 04 Aug 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Can add shredded carrot, raisins, or any veggie that's not bitter. If using a garam masala paste instead of powdered spices, use ~2 tablespoons. - 23 Oct 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
