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…

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