    I thought butter chicken was mild ? This recipe is super spicy, I will struggle to eat it

    Really depends on the spices you purchased. Some are milder than others. Never had a complaint that the recipe is too spicy. You may want to reduce the amount of spices

    i loved your recipe however found the measurements not in sync with Jamie Oliver and Maunika Butter Chicken You TUBE recipe so I was confused watching the video and following along with your recipe. I coped and just modified. Example: Maunika says use 1 tsp cumin in the yogurt marinade but none in recipe. All in all still delish!
