Butter Chicken- The celebrity

Butter chicken, the celebrity among the indian dishes, is an all time fav . Its fame has spread so much around the entire world that when we say "indian cuisine" people associate it with Butter chicken. The melt-in-the mouth Butter chicken is actually the tandoori chicken cooked in creamy cashew onion,tomato sauce and flavoured with cumin,kasoori methi and cilantro.

It is the best Seller at our restaurant as we follow the authentic indian recipe. This dish would gratify the taste buds of both spice loving and as well as those who would rather go for its milder version. It has a lovely orange hue, mostly garnished with some cream and cilantro .The Butter chicken served with fluffy basmathi rice is always a treat.
