      This is an excellent flavor loaded recipe for butter chicken. Instead of fresh tomatoes I used a14 oz can of stewed tomatoes that I put through the blender - I cut the recipe in half and cut the butter back a bit more than half. The fenugreek adds a special flavor - don't miss it. I didn't have the coriander for the garnish!. Dinner was enjoyed thanks Troy!
