    If you can't find tomato puree, you can substitute tomato paste mixed with water. Using regular canned tomatoes will not produce a rich red sauce. From Cooking Classy's blog.

      don't let the small number of reviews deter you; this recipe is fantastic! We, as another reviewer did, added more guram masala near the end of cooking to maintain the flavors. We also added twice as much cream because we like it creamy. Don't judge. I didn't need to add the cornstarch bc it thickened up nicely on its own. It was amazing and I am definitely making it again. Thank you!

      Made this and bought some from a restaurant to compare. The crockpot one was a hit. I personally couldn't taste a difference and my friends agreed. I don't like spicy so I didn't add jalapeño and did 1teaspoon of cayenne pepper, with that said, I still thought it was a little too spicy. Next time I'll only do 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Will be making this again! Thank you!

      So yummy! We used non-fat Greek yogurt and half-n-half instead of cream (that might be why it didn't look uber creamy like you get in a restaurant, but it tasted great!) Also didn't use the cornstarch, forgot to get it. This was a super easy dish. We served with aromatic rice and a couple of sides from an Indian cookbook we have. The sides were more time consuming than the main dish! This will definitely go into our dinner rotation. :)
