    I like chiken curry, what kind of oil do you recommend? Plam or sunflower?

    Western Recipes,
    You can use sunflower oil, vegetable oil, corn oil, peanut oil or sesame oil for chicken curry. But we never used palm oil for cooking.

    A quick question: Do I double the ingredients if I want to cook for 4 people?

    Exactly, Just double the ingredients to get double the amount curry.

    Hi there, what is ‘chicken masala powder’? I’ve not seen that in England – is it the same as regular Garam Masala powder?

    Chicken masala is not the same as Garam masala. It is not available in England. Try making it yourself..
