I can never decide whether I prefer the Butter Chicken or the Chicken in Yoghurt. They are basically identical (one cream & tikka paste, one yoghurt and no paste) but both yummy scrummy.

However it's been a while since I made either and I'm not sure which I'm going to make today :)

Sounds like a hard decision Tarasis.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Heh, it is when you haven't made your mind up and your guest for dinner is arriving in an hour :)

Wen't with Chicken in Yoghurt in the end, but I had also bought the cream so I could do the Butter chicken instead.

Thinking about it, has anyone tried doing the Chicken in Yoghurt with the Tikka paste?

We intended to have this with store bought tikka paste last night but at 5pm I could not find it so I made the tikka paste as well. We have frozen it in ziplock bags - thanks for that suggestion.
I increased the chicken to 900g and put it on the stovetop while I used the TM to steam the rice, also wanted more vegetables in the meal so I added cauliflower, pumpkin and peas and lower fat - replaced 400ml of the cream with 400g light coconut milk. It was fabulous - great recipe - thanks for the inspiration  ;D

Also if anyone has links for other recipes using the paste - can you please post them here? TIA
