Butter Chicken

Today my hubby wanted to have butter chicken with Pooris. I dont make it often coz its just that all rich and creamy and high calorie stuff. I had a big pack of chicken and its been a while since I made this version so thought it was a good idea. But then we planned to invite one of our friends to join for dinner. My friends are not a big fan of sweet style curries so I thought I should make something spicy for them. I made Pepper chicken for them. Recipe for that follows in the next post. These are recipes from the internet that I have tried many times and have always been a hit. So here is the recipe for Butter Chicken...
