I think he's great, and so is his accent, if he spoke oxford English it wouldn't be the same, after all it is Indian food he's cooking.

This is a great recipe. I've tried it once already, and it was delicious (eventhough I was missing a couple of ingredients!) and relatively easy for an Indian dish. Am doing it for the second time tonight. As for those of you who had difficulty understanding the chef's accent ... well, be patient, listen carefully a few times, and you'll get it. That's what makes international cooking fun, dudes!

What is "3 piece Garam Masala"? Normally garam massala is a number of whole spices toasted and removed after flavouring the oil or toasted and ground and used at the end of the dish as a powder. Please explain.

Hi Purpleblock, in this recipe, the chef means whole garam masala; cardamom, cinnamon, cloves (3 pieces of each). These are added to the hot oil. Watch the video rather than following the written directions. The process is well explained there and you get a fair idea of how to make the gravy.

Great recipe. Just stop using non stick pans, they are coated with fluoride...
