I`m sorry, I haven`t tried to make this yet, so please don`t take into account my rating. I was wondering, what is a nos? I have never heard of that measurement before. I saw cups listed, those I`m familiar with, but never a "nos". Thank you

My husband usually dont eat chicken I have a tough time forcing him to eat it but believe me this is the only curry he will eat pleasently without even leaving a bit for me. Everyone should try this im sure u wont be dissapointed


Fantastic easy recipe - would recommend to anyone.


I make this recipe often and it turns out good everytime. I do a little variations by adding potato cubes or green onions sometimes


It was very good, I just needed it to be a lot spicier.


I tried this recipe and it is delicious.
