I really enjoyed this recipe, but I might change a couple of things so I gave it four stars. One thing I would do is use yogurt instead of heavy cream, and use slightly less than what's called for. It waters down the flavor a tad too much. Perhaps just a scant bit less.
I would also use red chili powder instead of cayenne next time, and by that I don't mean chili powder that you buy at most grocery stores. It's a specific Indian spice that I only have found at a little mom and pop Indian shop near Pike Place market (for you Seattle-ites). I think this would give the dish a slightly more authentic flavor, but otherwise the ratio and types of spices were perfect and delish! I love the way the onions and garlic are cooked in this recipe, it's just perfect.
Also, instead of ghee (don't have any!) I used coconut oil which was awesome because it is also very pure, but I didn't taste the coconut flavor over the other flavors in the dish. It may have added a slight layer of flavor but not enough to be an issue. If I could just master homemade naan, I wouldn't need to go to an Indian restaurant again!
