* White pepper powder 1/2 tsp
* Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
* Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp
* Garam Masala powder 1/2 tsp
* Ginger-garlic paste 1 tsp
* Salt
* Lemon juice 1 tbsp

Cut chicken in small cubes, marinate it in either readymade butter chicken masala or all the powder ingredients mentioned above and ginger-garlic paste.
Marinate for 30 minutes.

Boil finely chopped tomatoes and pass it through a seive to remove tomato skin and seeds.
Fry the chicken in oil for 5 minutes or so. Add tomatoe puree. Cook for 5-10 minutes.
Add melted butter and cook for another couple of minutes.
Remove from heat and add the cream.
Serve hot with parathas/naans.

I just wanted to ask if the fresh cream can be substituted with fresh yoghurt instead? and if so would it be the same quantity as the cream?
