  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and satisfying Very nice sauce. Exceptionally easy to prepare. Don’t expect authentic/ restaurant style Indian dish. But flavor was smooth and made for tasty meal on a weeknight when short on time. I would buy again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Tangy Sorry to say this was a disappointment. Too much citric acid in the ingredients making it taste like a lemon bomb. Butter chicken is very rich in flavor. I even tried to soften to the extreme tangy tartness by adding half and half and lite sour cream to buffer the flavor. It was edible but not the typical rich smooth butter chicken gravy we are accustomed to. We are big fans of indian food and I cook a lot of indian food for my husband. They need to consult with an someone that is familiar with this dish regarding the flavor profiles.
