I’m going to assume you are using the curry base from glebekitchen, pre-cooking your chicken and not trying to double or triple the recipe. Evaporation is a by-product and thickens the base to a restaurant curry consistency. The only deviations from your recipes was that I had to use ground fenugreek because I couldn’t get hold of any leaves but only used half tsp, and I couldn’t get any tarmarind sauce so just left it out.

This chicken jalfrezi looks fantastic! Spices in one. Next time I will make sure I have tarmarind sauce and see if I can tell the difference. Everything ready to go.
