Once you have had garam masala, although recipes vary, you will always recognize it when you have it. And it is fabulous. Be sure to use it in this recipe.

This recipe starts with chicken and lots of it, so you can serve this dish over rice or noodles. The recipe recommends rice, and that is fabulous. A basmati rice would likely work best with this recipe.

Be sure to buy the full fat variety rather than a skim milk.
