Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

When I first heard about butter chicken, I thought to myself, 'This must be a very fattening dish. A stick of butter inside, maybe?'.

Turned out, I was wrong, but still glad about it! Why, you may ask? Because I love to eat butter chicken but doesn't want to expand my waistline further.

I served this dish when some of my friends visited my place. It was a hit! Its red appearance may fool many to think that it is hot and spicy. But in fact, much to the reverse, it is a sweet and mild dish, with refreshing hint from the yoghurt.

So, are you ready to 'butter' up yourself?
