    It came out well and it's definitely a dish I will repeat often, however, I'll use less yogurt next time and maybe add a few more spices like cumin and a little ginger.

    Meh. A bit on the bland side. It needs more flavor. It would really have been lacking flavor without the cilantro. We put hot sauce on it to make it taste better.

    delish! Flavors go very well together. If you like curry and plain yogurt, you will enjoy this.

    Pretty good. I’m on low carb diet and it works. I used Garam Masala instead of sweet curry. Would like to try with different spice next time.

    Flavorful combination of poultry, chick peas and spices. I was out of yogurt so I substituted buttermilk for a creamy texture and fresh tomatoes. Delish!

    excellent flavours and good for low carb diets. I found the yoghurt separated when it was stirred in though leaving the final result grainy and not the smooth sauce it should be. will use fat free sour cream next time.

    Nice flavour, I served it over jasmine rice.
