I made a delicious chicken makhani using this recipe as a starting point (managed to please an Indian friend).
However, this recipe on its own is missing a few necessary components without which this just does not work at all.
1. (and most importantly) - Brown Sugar!!! There's no sugar in this recipe and chicken makhani is a sweet, spicy dish.
2. Fenugreek seed (another commenter put me on to this - good call).
3. Double the garam masala (at least) and cayenne pepper.
4. Coconut milk is not essential, but it changed the dish from fantastic to perfect.
I didn't end up needing to add cornstarch, the consistency was perfect on its own.
