C46 Chicken Uri

This will not be found on many restaurant menus but is offered in one Bangladeshi restaurant I know of in North Yorkshire. "Uri" means 'Green (Lablab) Beans' in Bengali and is evidently used here to refer to the Broad Beans. It uses numerous spices to provide loads of flavour. Do not underestimate this curry, it is one to try. This is a recipe update but the original can still be found here.
