Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Love the flavors in this recipe. I use the no salt added tomato paste and chopped tomatoes to significantly lower the sodium (which is a need for me).
Too High in calories
What a delightful change in menu plans. I made some changes, e.g., no salt butter, full fat yogurt, no coriander seeds (none in house at time), reduced chili pepper and added curry. YUM! I will definitely make again and I think I will try @HAPPYWALKER's sauteed veggies suggestion.
Interesting combination of spices. I wouldn't be using the almonds which would drop the calories and fats a little. Will think about trying. Thanks for sharing.
I thought there would be more fat, doesn’t seem so bad
This is a lot of calories for a chicken meal. Not trying this one.
Very interesting. A little high in fat and cholesterol since I went off my meds for that. But I will try a lighter version. Thank you.
great but lots of calories
