Made this last night. I agree with the chilli comment. I put one very long chilly... might need to deseed first. I also used the low fat cream which seemed to be fine. It is still a rich and creamy sauce. Great recipe.

Is it possible for someone to post this recipe? I've been trying to get the Indian book but haven't managed to yet and butter chicken is one of our favourite recipes

I was thinking the same thing!  We're not huge Indian cuisine eaters here (the kids are too little to enjoy it) but this particular recipe  sounds great.  If someone could PM me the recipe, I'd be very grateful!  :-*

Finally got around to making this today and it gets the thumbs up from us too. I used a 400g can of light coconut milk and slightly thickened the dish at the end with 2 tblspns cornflour.  Would not really serve 4 people and definitely needs more chicken as Julie suggested.  I did use chicken fillets but will use thighs next time as I prefer them in a dish of this type.  As I was putting the spices in, I thought it would be far too hot for us but reading the threads above where children have enjoyed it, I thought don't be a whimp, just follow the recipe.  I did deseed the chillies though  :P :P  5/5

I just got grumpy reading all of you saying you didn't like the EDC version, only the Indian cookbook version - the last thing I need is another cookbook! >:(  But then a search led me to brazen's blog and I got quite cheery again! :)  Thanks!   What's wrong with the EDC version, by the way - anything I could easily fix when I try it?

We made this and loved it too. I didn't make the Tikka Masala paste though as I already had a jar of Monika's Brand Tikka Masala paste that I needed to use up (I bought it from a local indian spice store). In fact all the different pastes in this brand have been brilliant, the owner of the store recommended it to us. I would definately add more chicken next time though. Was a little on the hot side for the kids (we just didn't give them as much sauce and gave them a bit more cream).

Made this tonight for the first time, have made the EDC one quite a few times.  Oh my goodness, it's amazing- so much better than the EDC one (although my kids LOVE it)!  Even though I didn't have enough coriander, and had to use 1/2 sour cream as I didn't have enough cream, it was so delicious.

5/5

I'm itching to get my Indian cookbook now. I ordered it from my demonstrator a week ago but I won't see her for another 3 weeks. Is it possible for someone to pm recipe? I know it's cheeky but butter chicken is one of the few Indian recipes/ takeaway that my 4 year old twins gobble up. Agree with Edc version being somewhat bland. Can't make recipe ultra spicy for the kids but don't know what it is about the  EDC version that doesn't seem to hit the right mark.
