    Really delicious! I used bone in drums and thighs. I had no chili powder so I doubled (or tripled?) the red chili flakes. I had fresh turmeric paste frozen in an ice cube tray and used that in this recipe. It was DELICIOUS! The teenager gobbled it up! This is a keeper!

    Instead of chicken I used 1/2 cup lentils and an extra 1/2 cup of water. I should’ve put an extra 5 minutes on the pressure cooker to cook the lentils a bit more. Overall great dish!

    Although I made this kid-friendly by omitting pepper and substituting the chili powder with paprika, this came out loved by all that were fed from it. I also used turkey breast meat, not chicken thighs, and it still had good moisture content.

    very bland. the sauce was dull and a bit flavorless even with all the spices.

    Absolutely delicious but the preparation time is more like half an hour and allow another half hour for the cooking from start to finish.
