Review: YUM! This one wasn't as good as the tikka masala I made the same night, but hello - it was 'in a hurry' so obvi a lot less went into it. Also, they're so different, this is a yellow, curry powder-based sauce whereas that was a red/tomato-based sauce. I did think this has a lot of flavor - the onions came out nicely at the end and the sauce, while there wasn't a lot, was thick and easily covered all of the rice and chicken once stirred. I will definitely have this and won't change a thing - i'm also so glad I was able to use heavy cream, but still have the recipe around 450 calories - YUM!
