    Very Good
    There are recipes to make your own Garam Masala spice mix blends - not much more different than the spices already used in this yummy recipe. I forgot to take a photo, so will hopefully remember next time we make! - 7/15/17

    Very bland, despite the amount of seasonings used. Had potential though and it was super easy. I used breast, the texture was good. Would double the onion, add fresh garlic (30sec) after onion, before seasonings. Re-read your recipe, written poorly. "ADD ginger...." "steam". And what about turmeric? - 5/20/16
