    YUMMY! Im of south asian descent and this is my first dinner Ive ever made. If its your first time trying indian cuisine that actually tastes authentic then this is the dish for you! I followed everything perfectly and it came out mouthwatering. This is super easy, super fast, and the spices are perfect if you want it to be authentic. I was worried it wouldn't appeal to my south asian taste buds but its definitely Goldilocks material. JUST RIGHT

    This was great! I didn't have any cumin seeds so just replaced them with cumin. I also replaced the water with chicken stock. Other then that i followed the recipe. Will be having this again for sure!

    Absolutely delicious! One of my go to recipes. It is spicy, extremely flavorful, and easy to make. I cannot recommend it enough. I do add a but more yogurt, but have made the recipe as written and it is still great. If you don't like too much spice, cut down on the chili flakes.
