Green Chicken Korma recipe-awesome!!

Hey Karma Chef ~

Just made your Green Chicken Korma for my family. It was a hit! The kit had everything that was needed for an easy prepared meal. Just marinaded for 2 hrs before - nice flavors - very good.

Hint for first timers - ask for a 4 level spice - Karma Chef made me a 3 level and it could have been a little spicier :) Note, her recipe noted to add marinated chicken, I wasn't sure if I was to take the chicken out of the thick marinade, I chose not to do that - I just put the yogurt marinade mixture with the chicken in with the onions (I added fresh garlic). Also, recipe didn't say how long to cook til done - when chicken is covered in such a thick sauce, you can't tell if it's done...so, I simmered covered for 30-40 minutes and added the powdered cashew for about 5 minutes, which thickened the sauce.

I served it with baked rice and fresh pea pods sauteed with garlic and green onions. Excellent!

Can't wait to try another recipe from Karma Chef!

Wow super feedback! Will use it to fine tune recipe. Adding the fresh garlic with the onions was a nice touch. You are a true KarmaChef because you add in your own little touch. Love that. WHAT IS BAKED RICE? You must tell me. Also thanks for noting the cooking timing. I usually forget as I am winging it. Bad habit. That's why I need guineapigs like you to keep me in line. Much thanks Linda! Ya rock!
