  1. I wish you would show us how to make boneless chicken tikka or chicken tandoori in the oven and also give ideas if we have to make in a large quantity like 20lbs how to make it in the oven and still moist and delicious.

  2. I've made this decadent dish for my family many times to RAVE reviews! Thank You! Also, love hearing your amazing stories!

  3. I just finished cooking this. It tastes nice, except I don't like the taste of cumin seeds (khada jeera), and since it didn't really mix well into the curry I wish I'd used the powder instead.

  4. Just made this curry for the first time, it’s fantastic, thank you very much . It reminds me of stopping at a Punjabi dhaba!
