      Good! I have tried only one butter chicken dish from a restaurant in Ottawa and it was sweet. This recipe was not. I wonder what restaurant this is from? I made our version less spicy by substituting a bit of cayenne pepper powder and some sweet paprika in place of the Indian chili powder. I used sea salt, plus the rest of the ingredients. I found the sauce a bit too thin but maybe that is how it is supposed to be? I served this over a cumin Basmati rice dish, along with Cucumber-Tomato Raita for a good tasting meal. The only reason I won't try this recipe again is because we are lactose intolerant.
