picky, picky picky! lol.

my complaints: not enough garlic; not enough ginger. too wimpy. but don't much care for chicken either. this is gringo food Nick.

I'm sure if you look on the interweb you can find a much better curry chicken recipe, one in a deep thick spicey curry sauce, onion garlic, maybe peppers too.

but me, I'm eating curry beef, ginger beef. ginger beef is good, simple, not many ingredients. lots of whole ginger done right. spicey, yes.
