      Deantini, this was excellent, we are a huge fan of curry and particularly enjoy butter chicken, it always feels like a special treat. This is a really good recipe, not too spicy, and if you make enough to have leftovers, even better the next day!!!! Thank you for a lovely recipe, made for PMMR tag game
