Made this yummy looking curry last night but also had problems with the thickness of it. Had to keep adding more and more water which didn’t seem to work. I also decided to cut back on the amount of chilli powder you suggested by only using it in the marinade and not adding more later. I still found it very very fiery. Also the photo of the chicken being added to the curry looked completely different. Mine was coated quite thickly with spices. Yours doesn’t appear to be. Am questioning whether tbsp means tablespoon because the quantities seemed high in proportion to the amount of chicken and maybe that’s what caused my problems. Overall, it was edible and I’d like to try it again but not sure what to do differently next time. Any suggestions?

maria May 10, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Thanks Anna for sharing your feedback. This is slightly spicy curry but not fiery though may be the spicy range changes for everyone. If you finding curry too thick and spicy add more of coconut milk along with potatoes. This will make it less spicy. All the quantity mentioned is appropriate. You could use tea spoon instead of tablespoon for spices to make your curry mild spiced. Hope this helps you have a great weekend and all the best. Do keep me posted….

Frank May 2, 2013 at 6:19 pm

Do you think I could cook the marinated chicken on a rack in the oven or on a barbecue ? then add it to the sauce

maria May 3, 2013 at 10:27 am

Never tried doing that Frank cooking is all about experimenting so try and do lemme know…

meghna October 15, 2012 at 3:51 pm

I just made the chicken curry. ?It tastes good, but it doesnt look like yours!! Iam disappointed. Mine is much more thicker. So i took out a couple os cups of the gravy and then added water to dilute it, but with no change..

maria October 15, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Meghna I don’t know how the curry has got so thick because mine wasn’t. Also the ingredients and method are exactly the same way I made.

meghna October 12, 2012 at 9:11 pm

happened to see the pic of your chicken curry. It looks amazing, and i am sure it tastes amazing too.. Will try it ASAP. Meanwhile, keep up the good work~~

maria October 13, 2012 at 4:27 am

Thanks Meghna :) do keep me posted!

Mandy October 12, 2012 at 3:40 pm

I have tried adding more tomatoes but it has not made any difference although I have not tried lime juice, do you think that will work?

maria October 12, 2012 at 8:12 pm

Yes try lime juice and see it should work :)

maria October 13, 2012 at 4:26 am

Mandy lemme know if you still facing problems you could also try adding some potatoes :)

Mandy October 12, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Hi Maria, I don’t know what I have done wrong but I have made it far far too hot!, do you know any other way of cooling it down other than coconut milk, yogurt or cream………….and none of these have worked, other than the fact that it is far too hot it is lovely.

maria October 12, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Mandy it could be possible the green chilies you used might have been hot. Anyways you could have added some more tomatoes Or lime juice to reduce the spice.

agnelo October 12, 2012 at 9:22 am

Your recipe looks great I will try it tonite

maria October 12, 2012 at 10:33 am

Sure Agnelo lemme know how was the outcome? take care and thanks for coming here.

Linz October 9, 2012 at 5:39 am

Hey Maria! I had some guests coming over yesterday. I tried your recipe… And they a just loved it!! Thank you! I’m glued to your blog now!! This is the 3rd dish that I’ve tried from here…
Thank you!

maria October 9, 2012 at 7:02 am

You are welcome Linz I am happy your guests loved it take care :)

Mandy October 7, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Sorry Maria, meant to say that you say it is not mild nor spicy, so where would you rate it mild/medium/hot/very hot ??

maria October 8, 2012 at 3:53 am

Mandy I would rate it medium also I have used fresh tomatoes. Take tomatoes chop them into chunks. Now add them to a processor and grind until puree is formed. If you have any more queries please lemme know take care Mandy and all the best dear.

Mandy October 7, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Sorry Maria, Mandy again. you say it is neither hot nor spicy, I am a little confused as to what bracket you would put it in then? Are you saying that it is very mild?

Mandy October 6, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Hi Maria, I will be trying out your curry recipe next weekend but there are a couple of things I need to know, firsty just how hot/spicy will it be as I need to cover most peoples tastes, the guests I am having all like the spiciness of Bhunas/Jalfrazi/Tikka Masala……….will this be in the same line as these please as they don’t want it too hot but certainly not on the lines of Korma as that is far far too mild. Also I am making it for 10/12 people, how will the quantities change for that amount of people please?
Thank you,
Mandy

maria October 7, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Mandy this curry is not mild nor spicy. For 10 to 12 people just double up the quantity from the ingredient list. Hope this helps you and keep me posted how the curry was? take care.

Hi Maria,

Been browsing thru ur recipes. they all look yummy. what’s more, i’m going to try as many as i can starting from your chicken recipes. your step by step approach accompanied by great photography calls for a visual treat thats simple to follow. thanks so much…

maria February 26, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Hey Cynthia thanks a ton :) :)

Elizabeth December 1, 2011 at 9:34 am

The receipe looks good, but I am just doutful on the quantity of chicken used… especially the recipe for 30 people you have mentioned 750 gms….. Can you please advise ……

maria December 1, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Hey Elizabeth,

It will be better you try first in small quantity as I always do that before trying in bulk. You could use more chicken as for the 5 to 6 people I have used 250 gms chicken. So if I use math the quantity of chicken should be around 1500 gms. Hope this helps you.

Love,
Maria

Angela Warner October 13, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Hi can you tell me what i can substitute the coconut milk with due to nut allergy.
Also want to make this for 30 people how would i increase the quantities.

Hope you can help

maria October 13, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Hey Angela,

Thanks for dropping by! You could use 1 cup cows milk instead of coconut milk. However coconut milk gives a different aroma and flavor to the curry. But you could go ahead with cows milk. Also I would suggest you to try this curry first in small quantity before you make for 30 people. It’s better to try out with small quantity but if you are confident you could try for 30 people in one go. For 30 people here are the ingredients:

5 to 6 cups cows milk, 275 gms yogurt, 10 onion puree, 15 green chilies, 2.5 cups coriander leaves, 5 inch ginger, 50 to 55 garlic cloves, 50 mint leaves, 11 tomatoes puree, 1500 gms chicken, 55 pepper corns, 15 cinnamon sticks, 15 bay leaves, 15 green cardamom, 12 to 13 mace, 30 cloves, 10 tbsp turmeric powder, 11 to 12 tbsp fennel seed powder, 1o to 11 tbsp red chili powder, 15 to 16 tbsp cumin powder, 15 tbsp coriander seed powder, 10 tbsp garam masala powder, 10 to 11 potatoes, 15 tbsp oil, salt as per taste, 5 glasses water Or as consistency required.

Angela I have changed the quantity of chicken from 750 gms to 1500 gms. I am sorry I just gave you an approximate figure earlier. However you didn’t reply back stating if you tried the curry.

Follow the same procedure as stated in the recipe!

Hope Angela this helps you…take care and do lemme know how was it?

Love,
Maria
