  1. I've made your recipe five times after I got these amazing spices at our local Indian Market…'s the best!!! I am excited to try making your other dishes…thank you!

  2. traveled all over India from North to South, and learned all different ways of cooking Chicken curry, never ever found anyone who cooked chicken this way. Usually a good chicken curry can take up to almost 1 1/2 to cook or even more.

  3. I`m a cook but not an indian cook and was a bit confused you didn`t cook out the powdered spices with the onions etc.And large chunks of potatoes take a wee bit longer to cook than chunks of chicken breast.

  4. My sons loved this!! they have been eating east indian since they were in side my tummy. I would love to learn how to do Saag Paneer.

  5. Looks awful. I'm not meanig to be cruel, but I am surprised you had the cheek to name this video Indian style chicken curry. In India or Pakistan, they would laugh at such a basic bland looking effort. This is an insult to our culinary heritage.

  6. I want to try this one but I could not find masala and two more spices in the nearest mall..  I have to go to the city to look for it.  It seems nice to me,   Our curry always has coconut milk.  This one has none so I am curious.

  7. I love how your videos are more about giving people the knowledge to create their own curries rather than just providing a recipe for people to follow blindly. I've made several different curries based on this video and all of them have been lovely.

  8. I tried this for lunch. As I went on my day I was farting so bad co-workers were giving me bad looks. My boss even asked me if I was okay. I precised to explain what I ate but they didnt want a excuse. I then left for the subway I continued to fart and I was scared to shit my pants. Then it happend. I shit green liquid all down my leg. The smell was so bad I got off at the next stop and continued to shit. I dont know what you put in this but i duplicated it and I shit everywhere for days.

  9. very well and concisely explained the basic curry principles. Thank you.
    Just a question on the frozen ginger…I tried to find this in 2 of the well known big supermarkets near my place in London, but could not find this in the frozen food section. But I found one in a glass jar in the fridge side of the vegetable section. Is this the one you are talking about ? It contains some preservatives. If not, can you tell me what is the brand and if possible, which supermarket did you get it from – if you are in the UK ? Many thanks and greatly appreciated.

  10. Well organised, well presented, clear speaking and easy to understand. One of the better videos I have watched. Have subscribed, thank you.
