    This was a first for me, and will be making it again! I also used fenugreek leaves, and cut up my chicken thighs. Thought the sauce was a little thin, so just let it reduce with the lid off for another 5 minutes. I would suggest to anyone who hasn't cooked a lot of Indian food like myself, to have everything prepped ahead. Although my unpreparedness took me a few more moments, it was easy, delicious and made my kitchen smell fantastic.

    Great recipe and easy to make. I used Fenugreek leaves rather than seeds (as I believe Bal did on the television show. My husband says to make this a regular item. Delicious!
