like doing blackened fish). Add beer, stir, add water, potatoes,

I, too, had never attempted Indian cuisine at home. Everybody makes it sound so difficult and labor-intense. After stopping at a supermarket on the way home from work and spending a whopping five dollars on supplies, I had this entire dish prepared in an hour (half of which was spent reducing the sauce) and would heartily recommend it to anybody who likes Indian food or is looking for something new to try with chicken.

First time i've made curry at home! Normally local curry house does the honours! Was very surprised at the ease of cooking and the flavour that this recipe gave! Even the wife was impressed, can't really say anymore than that, except, thanks
