    ooooohh – I really want to try this combo – it looks like a great party menu – I’m just looking at the chicken recipe – and I don’t see the amount of onions required?

    LOL – guess what, I was so eager to try this for a nice leisurely Sunday lunch, that I went ahead and tried the recipe with TWO onions before you got a chance to update your blog, I figured, thats a standard amount for a chicken curry, right? 😉

    it was a total hit, i must say, the steaming hot ghee rice and the chicken curry was wonderful, my whole family enjoyed it, it’s definately a KEEPER in my books!
    Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Hey, BTW – is it possible this chicken curry is a spin-off of Chicken Dopiaza – the goan dish made with a lot of onions?
