Top notch recipe. Very clear instructions. This was my first ever chicken curry and it was a smashing success. I saw my wife making a face when she tasted the curry and she said that she couldn`t believe that she liked it as well as her curries. Thank you.

Excellent recipe. I hate to cook non veg; so my husband cooked it. Was simply amazing (even though we didnt add poppy seeds and fenugreek since they were not available) We had a guest come over for lunch and he was extremely happy with this too. Thanks a million!!!
