Oh my god! That's the best butter chicken recipe ever...I just made it today and was completely left spellbound with its taste! The taste was way better than a restaurant's curry..thanks a ton! I missed the authentic taste here in Auckland..now I can have it any time I want to..woo-hoo!!!
Nice recipe, loved the smooth texture of it. Only issue I had was with the 4 tbsp of sugar, seemed like a lot and tasted a little too sweet. Looked like about half as much in the video. But otherwise very nice.
Love the recipe! I cut down on the sugar (used 3 tbsp and still ok), reduced the chilli powder to a pinch so that my preschooler can eat it. The cashew nut really made a difference . this is my second attempt making indian butter chicken - this recipe is less complicated than the one i tried before, and turned out absolutely delicious.
I wouldn't call it that great! I tried the recipe and I must say that you need to balance sweet and spice in butter chicken. Whereas you've written down blind assumptions of the ratio of spices to be used. Not accurate at all. I followed the exact same way you prepared and followed the instructions. Not happy at all. Would rate it 3/10.
Just tried out this recipe, the taste is amazing! In the recipe it says 4 tbsp of sugar, id recommend 2 tbsp, otherwise it comes out too sweet. I never knew people used cashew nuts in butter chicken. Thanks for the recipe :D
Thanks so much for this recipe. I made this last weekend for our date night and my husband ate it all up and requested more the following day. I also made it vegan for myself. So very easy to do. Thanks for the clear and simple directions.
