Dear Anjum,

We do not get tomato paste... but I do have fresh tomatoes... can I use those?

if yes, then how many and when do I add them?

Aseem

Anjum said...

Hello Aseem, u can also lookout for tomato purée.
If not then a better way out is to grind 4-5 tomatoes in a grinder. Add this in the sequence mentioned in the recipe.

Assalam alikum anjum, hope you are doing fine.
I was trying butter chicken recipe today but then realised that your recipe shows 'black pepper powder and green chilli paste' which are not listed in ingredients.So, I was not sure whether to put or not and how much if yes...
Btw I tried kaddu ki kheer and chicken 65 both turned out to be super yummy....thank youuu
