Easy recipee .. although, addling little salt made it taste good, and definitely cook it in butter instead of oil, its butter chicken. also i think cream and youghurt quantity is not enough sinc it doesnt make enough gravy this way

Every Recipe has several different ways to make it. I personally tried this one and it came out really delicious.

this receipe is not right, first fry boneless chicken and make small pieces of chicken at keep beside, first u have to fry onion in oil till it becomes golden then u have to grind the onion and tomatoes with garam masala powder, then take a pan put butter then add the mixer to it then put chicken and boil for few minutes, th en at last put cream in it and boil for 10 minutes.

IT is a good recipe but i feel like i am not doing a good job because the flavour is not appearing. Maybe its the yogurt.I have made this twice and first time i drained the chicken water when it fried and it didnt taste that good, but now i didnt and it doesnt taste as good as last time
