Creamy Masala Chicken

The cream makes this curry quite mild, so use hot chilli powder if you like it spicy. We prefer it on the mild side. Goes great with toasted naan bread and basamati rice.

I really enjoyed it. My son who can be picky enjoyed it as well. He dislikes onions and he still liked it with all the onion this dish had.
