    Love this recipe it has great flavor. I did modify slightly . I added some zucchini- some cayenne for heat- and used cilantro instead of parsley. Delicious - my sons loved it with basmati rice. My mother always garnished her curry with Spanish peanuts- coconut and chutney. I put a few roasted peanuts on top. Better even left over!

    It turned out perfect. I followed the instructions. It needed more salt but other than that, great dish

    Very easy! Tasted like an authentic Indian dish. You may want to add a little cayenne and more curry powder to give it a little kick, since it can be a little on the sweet side.

    Very tasty. I added half again the amount of curry powder and used medium-spiced curry to get a bit of extra heat. I also used cornstarch with water to thicken the sauce just before serving.

    Great. Thought that liquid sauce was too much at the end so I let it boil some more to the right density.

    WOW! It was so delicious! - I added two carrots, two handfuls of mushrooms and extra paprika and curry for more veggies.

    The curry was really delicious and the whole family loved it. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I had to add a little bit more curry powder and it was more watery than I would have like and had been depicted but very delicious. I added a littler turmeric to help with the color and taste if you add a couple of spices it is so delicious.

    We loved how simple this recipe was and we took all of the reviews into consideration and it turned out flavorful and amazing! I air fried the chicken wings first, nice and crispy then I put half aside to add after everything is done and cooked the other half along with the recipe I topped with some juicy steak tomatoes and spinach over a bed of white rice.

    Delicious! Works great as a base to add more spices and flavors to customize your curry. I didn't put much sugar and added some mushrooms, ginger, cayenne pepper, and chili powder and it was great! I also recommend using a little bit less chicken broth; I used half a cup and it seemed like plenty. This is pretty easy to make for curry and is great to make a huge batch and eat it slowly throughout a few days. It tastes even better after it's been able to sit and absorb the flavors.

    This is a great recipe. I only gave it 4 stars because you have to change the recipe a little. FYI taste as you go!!! The sugar completely changed the taste, I’m glad I added a little. I added more curry powder and added turmeric and bell peppers. I will definitely make this again!!!

    Super yummy. Smelled reeeally good. The taste was good. I feel like one more spice could have been added maybe, but it was still super yummy. My husband doesn't like cookef tomato chunks - wondering what I could put in instead. It's definitely worth experimenting with! Me on the other hand, I loved it!

    Taste was very good but I would use less chicken broth. It was too runny.
