  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

  2. Absolutely love this; no nasty ingredients and beautiful flavours. Such an easy slow cooker meal for midweek, but can also be fancied up for the weekend.

  3. THE BEST butter chicken I’ve had. Cant wait to try the others from my local butcher.

  4. Anyone find this to be too sour after adding the sour cream? I did 3 tbs and found it to be over powering… Maybe cooking cream might have a better result.
