    Fragrant while cooking and tasty while eating. I doubled all of the spices because our family found it too mild. Adding a little chicken or vegetable broth is helpful as it tends to dry out while cooking.  -  19 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added more garam masala only because I love the flavor of a stronger curry. Does Wajiha have more recipes available ? =-)  -  07 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
