    A fantastic and easy recipe for butter chicken. I used almond milk yoghurt rather than dairy and was surprised at how rich and creamy the recipe still was. Will be making again!

    Perfect really good recipe. I did however add some Fenugreek since it does add a distinctness to the flavor. Also I added more heavy cream and less yoghurt

    Amazing. Made it a second time today and doubled it since it didn't last long. Quick to cook and a delight to eat.
