    This was a delicious recipe! I was comfortable with the spice level but I could see this being too spicy for a lot of people. Easy enough to cut down on the spice if you want it more mild. I doubled the recipe to eat all week and substituted the rice for just chopped cauliflower to avoid the carbs and squeeze in more veggies. I will be making this again for sure!

    It was delicious! The only thing I would change is to add more chicken due to a lot of sauce. I will definitely make this again. We loved it!

    Fabulous! To cut carbs I served it over riced cauliflower. I didn’t miss the rice.

    It was very quick and easy. (First time making an Indian dish on my own.) Done after only 4.5 hours on low. I used whole dairy milk, and whole fat Greek yogurt, and extra helping or two of heavy cream (obviously not choosing this recipe for the health factor), and used Kashmiri red chili powder instead or cayenne pepper. It was very yummy! It was definitely too acidic without the extra cream. Will definitely make again.

    I exchanged yoghurt and cream for a small container of sour cream. And the jalapeño and chili powder for one dried piri piri.

    This was very good! The flavors were excellent. I added a little extra butter and salt at the end—just a personal preference. The dish is excellent without the extras.

    Not as good as I thought it would be for all the spices that go into this, it’s rather tasteless. I had to add a lot of salt and pepper at the end to make it flavorful

    Delicious and just like it says, simple. The biggest challenge was having all the spices available. Once bought spices are bought you're ready for the next time. There will be many more next times, it was a hit! I used 1/4 tsp cayenne which worked well for us, Naan would also go well with this.
    A bit spicier than I expected but still very delicious. Definitely got more than 4 servings out of it which is always a bonus. Easy to make, will likely become a regular meal.

    Very good and easy. We cook Indian food a lot with usual complex prep. This recipe reminded me of Tiki Masala. Spicy but,not bad. We used frozen peas at the last 15 min instead of bell pepper.

    Exquisite! We didn’t do the crock pot, more like the street vendor approach. It’s a keeper recipe.
