    This was horrible. I make India food all the time. This doesn't have enough ingrdients to make it work  -  29 Sep 2008


    Not bad, but I found it bland, even after marinating for 3 hours.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was a rather ordinary tasting barbecue chicken. Nothing extraordinary. After marinating for 3 hours I was expecting a real Indian flavour. The flavours did not really come out at all. That's what I get for going for an easier recipe than other Indian type recipes with more ingredients found on this site. Will not make this again.  -  29 Sep 2008
