Serve this sensual creamy dish best with chapattis but goes well with white rice as well. If you you don't have creme fraiche on hand your can use Greek yogurt or coconut milk instead.

We absolutely loved this, a real treat!! I didn't make any significant changes, like previous reviewers I had to use a regular onion, not realising that I had run out of green, and I did add a bit of white wine to create a bit of sauce, but I think that these did not significantly alter the dish. Definitely a make-again!!! Thank you awalde, lovely recipe, made for PRMR tag game.
