  1. Tried this recipe and it turned out great! I also cooked okra and cauliflower (using the same spices) in chicken stock and served them on the side along with rice.

  2. I love your recipe, I've cooked it twice now though I burned the onions a little. But it's definitely one I'm gonna be adding to my regular recipes. Thank you for sharing it

  3. Okay, I did make this about 10 days ago. I let it sit in the fridge a few days for the curry flavor to set in. I've decided I am definitely not a fan of Indian butter chicken and most Indian curries in general. I've given this recipe many more tries than I should just because everyone says how good Indian butter chicken is….but it's just not for me. at. all. I'm not a fan of the spice combinations in this dish. Your recipe was good, so it's not you, it's Indian curries (chicken jalfrezi notwithstanding, that is). I made two Thai dishes and they both came out amazing! The mok talay dish was to die for even though I modified it so much (it's typically made with seafood, but I had a lot of chicken thawing in the fridge so that's what I used). I LOVE Asian curries in general, just not Indian curries, apparently. Also made an amazing white bean chili modified from Frankie's recent recipe on Tastemade and it was AMAZING. I've made white bean chili before and it was eh, but I played with his recipe slightly and it was super duper good! 🙂

  4. I sure wish she would make the actual recipes available to us. Just watching her run through the recipe without giving us an opportunity to download it is extremely frustrating.

  5. Just followed your video step by step and it was soooo easy! I had to omit the cardamom because I couldn't find it in my nearby grocery stores and I also added some leftover boiled potatoes from the night before and it turned out to be a huge success!! Thanks for this recipe~ Please create a tikka masala recipe soon!!! I'd love to see your take on it!! 🙂

  6. Wow I never thought it would be this quick and easy to make!! I can't wait to make this with tofu instead of chicken since I'm vegetarian. Since I'm using tofu instead, do I still have to simmer it for 20 minutes or should I simmer it for less time?

  7. Today i tried mam .. superb .. milagu and chilly powder kaaram athigam ayidumnu nenaichen .. but correcta irunthathu …vadacurry and moru kuzhambu nice dish also ..
