    Had this dish in England this summer and was intimidated to make it myself. Tried this recipe and loved it, although I tweeked it a little. I doubled the amount of massala and added 1 cup yogurt. Very savory, thanks for an easy dish that tastes like it took forever!

    LOVE this dish, as do my husband and son (and they are PICKY!). I am PROFOUNDLY disappointed that McCormick is no longer offering their garam masala. Please bring it back, or tell us how to make THAT. I know you sell all the spices that go into the garam masala blend, I just need to know how much of each one!

    There is really no use of cornstarch!! A artificial way to make gravy look heavy and creamy.

    INSTEAD OF HEAVY CREAM, I WILL USE COCONUT MILK

    I started making this from the packet and couldn't find it anymore. I found out the ingredients and have been making it ever sense. It is very easy and so good!

    Have made this many times with the packet but could no longer find it in stores so bought the only ingredient I didn't already have, Garam Masala, and made it from scratch. SO good and best served in the traditional way with naan bread to sop up all the yummy sauce.

    Have made this many times with the packet but can no longer find it so bought the only ingredient I don't already have on hand (Garam Masala) and made it from scratch. SO good and best served the traditional way with warm naan bread as a utensil and to sop up the yummy sauce.

    I made this tonight. It was wonderful, I doubled the garam masala, and removed the chicken and reduced the sauce before adding cream. I will make it ALOT Dianne Schneider

    We love this in my house. It,s one of hubby's favorite things for me to make. And so easy! Have madeit several times, and it never fails to please. We are a little snooty about food, so five stars is saying something!

    I make this in my crock pot. I just add all the ingredients except the cream and thickener which I add for the last thirty min. Easy, yummy dinner. I am doing paleo so I sub coconut oil, coconut milk, and arrowroot for the butter, cream, and cornstarch.
