    really good, my family prefers this to the jar sauce! I dice the chicken and do the recipe on the stove top and even add pieces of cauliflower.

    I often eat authentic Indian food and although this had Indian flavours it definitely did not come close to the real butter chicken. Good enough as a low calorie imitation of butter chicken because it was still very tasty. I doubled up on the cayenne pepper.

    This was very good, but there was a bit of taste missing to it, so i added some hot sauce. next time, i'll probably add more cumin and marsala.
