    sorry but made this tonight and I was very disappointed. the yoghurt curdled and the taste was very bland which surprised me with the amount of spices added.  -  09 Nov 2016


    Substituted a can of coconut milk for the yogurt. Cooked for three hours on low on the stove, outstanding –!  -  03 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    at first i was going to give this four stars and bf asked why.. i told him that it was good but it didn't wow me.. i served his plate first (over plain white rice) and forgot the cilantro, lemon, and left out the cream.. the cilantro was the key.. i added some on my finished plate and that made all the difference.. i had cooked some cauliflower in the residual gravy and added it to my plate .. five stars it is.. i used thighs for the breasts.. two 8 oz cans of tomato sauce.. and greek yogurt for the plain.. i usually use Easy Garam Masala from this site when it's called for.. but unfortunately i was out of cardamom so i just used the recipe minus the cardamom.. bf said this reminded him of spanish rice but i think it's b/c of the cumin, jalapeno, garlic and tomato sauce.. either way we really enjoyed this.. ty so much for the recipe  -  16 Mar 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
