    I tried making this tonight and it was excellent. Being a low-carb cook, I substituted thighs for breasts and used virgin coconut oil as the oil. The thigh meat is more moist and the combination of the coconut flavor from the oil with the spices from the masala seasoning really worked well. Less than 35 total carbs and less than 25 net carbs in the entire recipe.
