    Very Good! More like a soup than a stew, I would use less water next time-and maybe add more chicken, other than that it was delicious! Thanks for the recipe - 3/18/08

    Sensational, I did omit the potatoes and used less water then spooned it over basmati rice. My kids loved it and the milk helped tone down the chiles. - 2/23/08
