I cooked chicken kurma today and my husband loved it . i just added my homemade garam masala just few mins before removing from fire it just gave a good taste and fragrance to it.

The recipe is delicious, and although im not indian, i enjoy authentic Indian cuisine! I recommend it! There;s only one tiny problem when you use whole garam masala mix instead of powder. You will end up having chunks of spices in your dish :(
