This is a great base recipe. My fianc? likes a sweeter butter chicken, but other than that, he raved. Thanks for sharing!

There was something missing from it & not enough oomph!

First had buttered chicken in New Zealand. Loved it. This is the best recipe I have come up with so far here in the states.

Good recipe. I added peanut butter in as well when frying chicken to add peanut flavour and soothing smell to the dish. :) Thanms for sharing

Very good. I could not find 'ginger garlic paste' so I made my own using a 50/50 ratio; do not know if that is correct but it seemed to work good for us. The butter chicken was simple to make and flavorful.

English equivalent would be single cream !

Half and half is 1/2 whole milk and 1/2 cream. It is sold prepackaged in the U.S. Hope this helps!

Can someone please explain what half and half is? Am in the uk so maybe it's lost in translation. Thanks
