    I'd love to try a 'true' curry sometime, but unfortunately I'd have to order away for a lot of the ingredients. I live in Washington State about 150 miles away from Seattle. In the tiny community I live in, we don't have a lot of access to exotic ingredients, and the chiles, methi leaves, and asafoetida would be considered extremely exotic here. But I digress. Your recipe looks wonderful, it sounds warm, fragrant, and spicy. I love chicken thighs. They're so moist and rich. Great post! - Natalie

    Sounds delicious! I love anything spicy (well not ANYTHING)! I've never heard of kashmiri chiles, but I'm sure I can find them. Also, what is asafoetida?

    Wow! My kind of recipe... tons of leftovers! (That is, unless my buddy comes over, in which case this may not be enough for the both of us ;-)

    Kashmiri chilies are one of my favorite chilies to use in Indian dishes... a nice mild flavor, and beautiful color.

    Your debut recipe earned my five! Now, show us some of those photography skills!

    Thank you,

    Oh, you Brits and your curries! I love them, too, Phil. Just wish I could translate those measurements into something I can understand here in the US. Sounds like wonderful ingredients! Thanks for making me drool, anyway....
