Hello Sonali, The recipe looks delicious! I do have one question though, I can't have spicy food (very sensitive mouth). Do you mind telling me what spices I need to remove in order to make it mild? Also, the Yogurt that you mention in the recipe, what kind is it? Sorry for all the questions and thank you in advance

Thank you for appreciating my recipe. In order to make it mild, do not add red chilli powder to the recipe. The yogurt mentioned is the nonfat yogurt available in almost all grocery stores. Let me know if you need more information.

How did you make the gravy??I don't know see the mention of any water or cream for the gravy ! Sonali hope you will reply fast so that I can make Butter chicken fast:) Thanks.

There is a mention of Cream, Tomato Purie and Yogurt. This constitutes the gravy. Hope this helps and you make butter chicken fast :)
