  6. I tried this recipe yesterday on a whim - I was so tired of the usual way I prepare chicken curry and needed a change. This is a lovely recipe! Very North Indian taste to it. I would love to add it to my recipe collection some day - with your permission. I amde a slight adjustment and ground the tiomatoes and pastes so as to get a thick gravy =)
