Makhani Chicken (Indian Butter Chicken)
This recipe was potentially very good but sadly let down by the requirement for far too much garlic. To begin with a large amount of garlic puree went into the ingredients list and then twice more it called for added garlic. Eventually the dish becomes swamped with the taste of garlic and that's detracting from the subtleties of the flavours of spices and the chicken. Also there was a rather over sweet addition of a lot of honey and heavy cream which makes it just too rich. The Chicken Jalfrezi was a much better balanced recipe.

Chicken Jalfrezi
I agree with everyone here. This was a very nice balanced recipe. My only regret is that my friends in America find it very hard to obtain proper Basmati rice to go with any of these Indian recipes. They market a rice which they have borrowed (some say hi-jacked) the Basmati name in the USA which is nothing like true Basmati. Luckliy here in the UK we can obtain the very best Basmati. I submitted a photo for this Jalfrezi and it looks as good as the meal tasted. Full rating for this one.
