I tried this recipe and it was good. But I made two changes. I marinated chicken with 1 tsp chilly powder, 1 4 tsp turmeric powder and salt for half an hour and shallow fried before cooking. My husband also liked its yummy taste.

the curry part came out good but chicken was not spicy enough. I ended up frying the whole curry again with chili and more salt. It was nice to try this recipe once but I wouldn`t make it again.

it`s truely great.But i think for soaking cashews 30mins is not enough,more time is needed in order to get fine paste.

Easy to make but taste isn`t that great... Will do for a quick chicken curry for the occasional chicken eater, but for regular chicken eaters, you might want to try something else to please your palate...

Really it was very good, even i tried without cashew nuts as u know that cashew nuts are high caloried, So milk and cream has done the chicken yummy. Everybody at my home kissed my hand. Thanks a lot
