Made this last night for dinner and it was really lovely.  I love the use of yoghurt instead of coconut milk, it really does give it a light citrusy flavour.  I used chicken breast and cooked for the full 20 minutes but would probably cook for a bit less next time as the chicken was a little dry from over cooking.  I also added a handful of unsalted cashews during the last 10 minutes of cooking which added a lovely texture.  Would definately make again.

Welcome to the forum Terese.I liked your idea of adding cashews during the last 10 minutes of cooking. :)

Hi everyone and thanks for the warm welcome.  I'm from Perth, Australia and have had my thermomix for a few months now and am really loving it so far.

I agree Terese with the dryness and have made a note in future to cook a little less than the 20 mins. Your cashew nut idea also was a great addition.

I'm finding that cooking with breast in the Tmx often ends up dry so we're using more thigh than previously. I can't wait to try this recipe though!

Hi Terese, welcome to the forum.  I agree with Ostara, thighs are so much nicer and are worth the extra work to remove all that fat.  Breast meat is fine if not overcooked though.

We had this for dinner tonight and the kids (6, 4 and 2) gobbled it down. I used chopped chilli in a bottle, but only used one tsp since the kids were eating it.  No problems getting them to eat their dinner tonight.  We had it with some frozen raw paratha's / roti bread you buy at the indian shop and you quickly dry fry them in a frying pan.  They're so yummy, the kids love them too to put their curry on. Thanks for the recipe, ideal kids version of a curry.

We made this last week (though with red, not green Chillies, as we don't normally have Chillies we don't know how much of a difference that made) for my wife it I, we both thought it was scrummy if a touch too hot (lovely taste then hot after taste). We're thinking of leaving out the Chillies (or using only one) next time.

I've been meaning to try this one since a while.
I had some home-made yogurt so I decided to make it
It was quite spicy and tasty. My husband and I both liked it
Thanks a lot for sharing

Since I've used home-made yogurt and not a thick one judydawn's tip was very helpful

Made this tonight. Used 1kg breast fillets and even though my yoghurt is extremely thick it was too runny so I thickened with some cornflour in milk.

Really lovely - the 6yo had two servings.

We had this tonight with rice and veggies, and it was delicious. I forgot to take a photo and it's all gone now.
