If you can't be bothered with buying all those spices but still want that awesome butter chicken taste, then short cut the whole process and buy the best butter chicken spice mix in NZ on www.butterchicken.co.nz

Thank you Sandra, I ordered 3 packs, received them today and couldn't wait to try it, so used one tonight - I have tried various recipes for butter chicken, none hit the spot, but this butter chicken was the best authentic tasting one i've made. The recipe says for 3 people, but I think it could stretch to 4. Good value too

Yes, I'm so sorry about that, I wish I could send to Aussie, I've tried 3 times and every time Aussie customs won't let it through. Must cause it smells so darn good they kept for themselves! ha ha.
