    Just okay. It was like it cooked too Long and everything went to mush, the chickpeas were no longer whole, the chicken was completely shredded. It tasted fine, but seemed a bit generic... nothing specifically great or terrible. I did add a teaspoon of chicken stock to mine after reading comments about it being bland. I think some of the instructions are wrong too, like whizzing the chicken, tomatoes and coconut milk on speed 10. I didn't do that.

  • I cooked this a couple of

    I cooked this a couple of days ago. I used half the measures, except for the chilli, and forgot to add the Flour so it was a little wet.

    I also minced the Ginger first up and set aside.

    The taste was great!! I will do this dish on a regular basis.

    Well done Mrs V.
