I made this x's 4. The only differance or change would be to mince the fresh ginger and you dont wnt to use any substute for butter. I used only 1 stick of butter which reduced it by 1/4. I bought ready made masla at a nearby Indian store.
This dish I made is better than their's that they serve and cater.
I topped mine with natural yogurt and every critic is in heaven.
Thankyou so much for sharing this recipie!!!
