Wiki says
"It is a dish made by marinating a chicken overnight in a yoghurt and spice mixture usually including ginger, lemon or lime, pepper, coriander, cumin, tumeric, chilli, methi and garlic. It is in some ways similar to chicken tikka masala.

The chicken is then roasted or baked.

A sauce is made from butter, tomatoes, almonds and various spices, often including cumin, cloves, cinnamon, coriander, pepper, fenugreek and sometimes cream. Once the sauce is prepared the marinated and roasted chicken is chopped and added to it"

It is a taste worth sampling (with saffron rice and naan bread), if you've never tried it!

okay... here's the problem with Indian food and people's perceptions:

the term spicy gets thrown around a lot.

it often means different things to different people.

some use it to mean using lots of spices (as in a variety)

some use it to mean how hot the dish is (as in burning sensation in the mouth)


Indian food is traditionally rich with a variety of spices, but not always really hot

when ordering your food, just ask the server how hot it is, or ask that it be made to how hot you want it
(pretty much all places are happy to comply with this kind of request)

edit: letting a dish cool down (as in actual temperature) can also reduce the sensation of how spicy it seems (as in burning of the mouth)

The " flaming Bombay divorce special " is also misunderstood. Ooops my bad derailing the thread.

no worries Bill, I wasn't entirely sure how much you were just joking versus being seriously hesitant.

I just thought I'd post up some clarification for people that think Indian food is always like a nuclear meltdown in your mouth. :laughing
