Reviewed chicken in creamy tomato curry: chicken tikka masala

5 days ago on

Very YUMMY! I will definitely be making this again. I think next time I will use canned diced tomatoes to cut down on the chopping. I chickened out and took all the seeds out of the Serrano but I think I'll leave a few in next time. Very warm and comforting.

Just delicious! Even better the next day. I used turkey instead of chicken because it's cheaper but kept everything else the same. The addition of the kale is genius (who knew). Will be making this all winter.

Very Good But Not Great

I was hoping for more ginger flavor and there is almost none. Next time I will add more ginger. I used straight from the farm carrots which tend to be a little larger (though sweeter) than the ones I get at Shoprite. I should have cut them up smaller, because by the time they got soft most of the liquid...

Okay, it tasted good but here is what I recommend. Cut the sun dried tomatoes small so that you don't get a big bite. Love the flavor of the goat cheese and sausage. The eggs were over cooked which was too bad. If we were to make it again we might poach the eggs separately. Others seemed to have more success

Loved it. Lots of flavor and easy to make. I am using the peanut sauce recipe in a cold noodle salad with vegetables. Enjoy!"

So,so, so good. I made this last night for the first time and I'm still thinking about it. We just used a regular Budweiser and it was delicious. So with buying the meat whole and cuttting it up yourself. Don't skimp on the time for carmelizing the onions this is what gives it it that slightly sweet rich flavor. The prunes add flavor as well"

Not sure how to rate these. They are a bit of a pain to make, and a little pricey, but hey it's Christmas. They are very chewy and after a day in the tin they were even softer. I will try it again and maybe use a little less honey and more sugar. I didn't have a pastry bag and used a Ziploc bag, which worked but it would have been easier with "

First, I don't LOVE pumpkin pie and could o without it but it is Thanksgiving and my job is desserts so I tried this recipe. Even I enjoyed it. Pumpkin pie lovers thought it was wonderful. Very creamy and spicy. The texture of the pie is smooth and light. If you don't use these spices often, I recommend you check that they are still fresh bec"

The only changes I made was that I used dark corn syrup and omitted the bourbon. The pie was delicious and everyone commented on how delicious it was. I tried the recipe because it called for honey and I have an amazing bee keeper locally and I'm always looking for recipes to use heir honey. I didn't put in he entire amount of pecans because I "

Excellent recipe. Not groundbreaking, but very tasty. I made half the recipe. I was able to cut almost all ingredients in half and used only one egg. I think the salt measurement is wrong, it seems like a lot. I used 2 teaspns for half the recipe and it was perfect. I processed the Panko as instructed but I'm not convinced that regular dried"

I also make calamari this way. I cannot get the garbanzo beans crunchy! I tried leaving them in longer but it didn't help. They were still great. Next time I might try the egg wash trick."

We have made this many, many times and really love it. It works really well for a dinner party. I recommend slicing the fish and then placing it on the sauce. This stretches the fish, and not everyone can eat an entire steak. Another wonderful recipe from Ina. Don't skip the Pernod it really makes a difference."

Every holiday my family asks for this cheescake. It is perhaps the best cheescake recipe I've ever made. Well worth the effort.""
