 Butter chicken, Don’t  know how i miss this recipe to share here, this is our most favourite curry in chicken to relish with roti.. These butter chicken masala is similar to panner butter masala.. some how this is not too close to the punjabi restaurant.. though the richness of the gravy from cashew milk and fresh cream will lift up the eyes to taste more..

Joe is a big fan of butter chicken.. he first check the menu card for butter chicken, Mostly our visit will be to punjabi restaurant.. there is no compromise with their traditional taste.. often we prepare this in home, but its a surprise for me, how i miss to share it here.. and finally found the recipe in the folder.. and now here comes the folder clearance day for my MacBook.. this is a best pair with roti, pulao too.. the same way you can prepare the panner.. i love both the panner masala and chicken.. i have one more recipe with butter chicken will share it here soon.. no more delay rite rite I’m running continuous blogging and this is my day 60th continuous post.. thank you all for the love and support..
