Curry in a Hurry!

I love to try out different recipes from other cultures.
The aromas and tastes feel like you are taking a mini vacation to another country without even leaving your kitchen.

Indian food is quickly becoming a favourite in our house. The unique spice combinations have such a beautiful flavour, so different then other cuisines.
This is my variation of a popular dish called Chicken Curry that can be prepared in under an hour. You can use plain yogurt instead of the sour cream if you prefer.
Garam Masala is a popular Indian spice blend that available in most grocery stores in the spice aisle.
You will find yourself making this again and again, as it is perfect for a night when you want something a little out of the ordinary.
