Spiced just right and full of flavour. A definite one in the rotation for sure Thanks
I tried the Chicken Madras and I was looking forward to seeing if the claim of being restaurant-like was accurate. While there was definitely a nice flavour to the dish, I struggled to consider it a Chicken Madras. The recipe calls for coconut milk which isn't typically used in a Madras and when adding this along with the water, the end result is more soup-like than a sauce. I'm still looking forward to trying the other options but this particular one needs a change in recipe to make the consistency of the sauce thicker and to be able to be considered a restaurant quality Madras.
Great instructions, will do better next time, but overall very good
Simple ingredients and the spice kit make for a very nice meal.
We control the “heat” by the amount of spice we add at the end of cooking.
I've been using these spice kits for years now, and this stuff never disappoints.
