Such a fragrant and delicious dish. The ingredients might seem intimidating but it take no time prepare. I have had many dinner parties just so I can make it. Fantastic. You will definitely not be disappointed.

Fantastic! Easy and tasty. I would recommend serving it with a side of red peppers for those who like it really hot. I will never make rice any other way again. It was perfect. Thanks.

Great job Jaimie. I thought that I made a good Chicken Tikka Masala, but this recipe far exceeds mine by a mile! I am now off to buy Jamie's new book. PAUL
