  1. I bought your butter chicken sauce but don’t have almond meal

    1. Hi there, thank you for your email, my apologies I haven’t responded sooner. That shouldn’t be a problem all the almond meal does is add some texture and thicken the sauce a little. Did you enjoy the flavors? regards Shelley Zest Byron Bay
