Try adding some sundried tomatoes to this and i gurantee you you wont regret it it adds a lot of more juicy flavours and taste good with the chicken and onions.

Better than the tandoori chicken with peanut sauce..thank god that one was so freaking weird and the peanut taste was not all my thing, this atleast has a bunch of flavors and a more colorful appearance.
