Delicious. But How do you prevent the yoghurt from curdling?

I wasn't too impressed with this as the yoghurt curdled and didn't look very appealing - frustrating as I had a lot of guests over for dinner.

My family just loves this recipe. To save time I now use chicken thigh fillets cut into pieces and it works well. I have also substituted soya yoghurt in place of the regular yoghurt (as both my children are allergic to dairy) and whilst I still prefer the original recipe, my children really enjoyed the dairy free version.

This recipe is a nice one, I found there to be a bit too much cinnamon, I made it again with just one stick of cinnamon and it was much better!

We really enjoyed this recipe. It has a very rich flavour but if that's what you fancy then it's great. Seemed to serve four rather than six for us, maybe we just eat a lot!

I tried this recipe on my very critical fiancee. He loved the flavours but felt it could do with more yoghurt for dipping naan bread in the sauce! Very nice and will make again

I have made this for my family and they love it, the mixture of flavours and the sultanas is lovely. Similar to a Korma but creamier. This is best made the day before, stopping at the point where you combine everything together. This gives the meat time to absorbe all the flavours before you finish the cooking.

Very tasty and easy, great midweek dinner. My boys loved it, probably because it was sweet and not spicy.

I put in 300ml greek yoghurt and it could have done with a bit more but I did cook it for an hour on a slightly lower heat.

Lovely tasty curry. Chicken thighs are the best to use to make this very special.
