“I'm very fond of curries; I've made many. The first time I tried this, it was a bit on the spicy side but -more than that- suffering from too much liquid. The Garam Masala didn't really work with that amount of fluidity ... even when thickened. I realized the the spice blend needed to be hot, yes, but it also needed more natural sweetness and less liquid. This version achieved that, muchly.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, heat the sesame oil over a medium flame until hot. Add the onion, dried apricots, carrot, ginger root, and garlic; stir occasionally and cook until the onion turns translucent. Add salt and pepper to taste (about a pinch) but be careful not to brown the onions.
  2. Mix the chicken thigh meat with the cayenne pepper and half of the Masala; stir the seasoned meat into the vegetables. Cook until the chicken is opaque.
  3. Add the tomatoes and garbonzo beans; stir into the meat and vegetables. Cook until the liquid of the tomatoes comes to a simmer.
  4. Add the cauliflower, coconut milk, and remaining Masala. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to "low". Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook for 20 - 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the cover, increase the heat to "medium" and reduce the thickness of the broth to a desired consistency.
  6. Ladle equal portions into bowls with either Basmati rice or potatoes.
