    I left out the fenucreek leave as we didn't have any, and I only added about a tblsp of coconut oil to saute the onion. I didn't add anymore.

    Hubby said it was better than the takeaway shop!

    Submitted by Luckyshepherd on 19. February 2016 - 12:12.

    I'm a new user too, and have just moved to the US so hunting down spices isnt easy!  Most Americans have pretty bland tastes except when it comes to Mexican (their fave), but I made the garam masala from the basic cook book that came with my thermomix.  It is still cooking and last night's left over basmati is in the Verona tray (hopefully it will heat up), but I wanted to say that my kitchen smells divine.  Only 6 minutes to go and we'll taste the results - this is my first time posting, and I wanted to thank everyone in this wonderful community. Tomorrow will be my first week anniversary of owning a thermomix and I'm so glad to have finally found my cooking mojo tmrc_emoticons.) it's been a long time coming

    Submitted by jacksmum on 10. February 2016 - 17:04.

    Winner winner (Butter Chicken) dinner! I was initially intimidated by the long list of ingredients but once I worked out most of them were from the spice rack all was well. Really easy but most importantly super tasty - it says 4 portions but I stretched it out to 6 with a litle help from some steamed zucchini served with it.

  • What a lovely simple dinner.

    Submitted by Luffingham St Kitchen on 19. January 2016 - 23:07.

    What a lovely simple dinner. Added some peas at the end as I was too exhausted to think of veggies today., 

    Did not have fenugreek leaves so milled my dry fenugreek at the start. I have tried the more complex Skinnymixers which is lovely, but this one is so much quicker and very tasty. Thank you so much for your conversion...oh and I made a half recipe and with rice was four generous meals.

    Submitted by Mdward on 19. October 2015 - 07:53.

    This was a good dish but I prefer using the whole spices versus ground.  It gives it a better flavour and is smoother sauce in my opinion.
