    Easy and delicious! Curry leaves are very important. Powder substitute is lacking.

    Incredibly delicious! I ran out of curry leaves so I used lime zest as a good substitute. It was perfect. Also, I used ginger paste and garlic paste (separate jars). Makes a world of difference!

    Really tasty and easy to make, although I did add extra coconut cream and didn’t have curry leaves so used curry powder instead.

    Really tasty and easy to make. I didnt use any chilies and then was able to blend a little, stir in some natural yoghurt and feed the baby too! :-) she finished the lot! Couldn't source curry leaves but powder worked fine.

    Came out delicious but next time I’ll Brown the chicken more. My local grocery store don’t carry curry leaves or fresh coriander only dry.

    Delicious & easy! I used left over cooked chicken. I also used 3 tsp of curry powder instead of the curry leaves, cumin, & turmeric.

    this was terrific. we have tried so many recipes to get something close to what we have in restaurants, only to be disappointed. This recipe was superb and exceeded our expectations as well as anything we have had in any restaurant! the only change we might make would be to add more heat. we served it over roasted sweet potatos.

    This is delicious! I have glazed the onions with white wine, and the result turned out really good!! Served with rice on the side. Everyone loved it, thanks!

    delicious. i didn't have coconut cream so I added some corn starch to the milk to thicken the sauce. it still turned out awesome. my three year old had three servings. I'm definitely adding this recipe to my regular rotation.

    Made a few substitutions but overall it turned out great.

    It is really good and I will definitely make it again. Next time I will use more chili’s as I like it spicy and the small chilis I used did not add any heat. Also be sure to go with less water not more. A keeper recipe for sure.

    Very good. Wish the ingredients list was on the actual recipe, as I had to go back and forth trying to figure out the ingredients... but it was well worth it.
