    Butter Chicken Curry
    Looks like a delicious recipe, but I am a bit confused as I can't see curry among the ingredients. Am I missing something?

    No, you are not missing anything. The recipe uses the individual spices for its flavor instead of a "commercial curry powder".

    This recipe Butter Chicken Curry from Indo Base contains garam masala

    Note: "Curry powder" as we know it was a British invention, not an Indian one, intended to capture the flavor of Indian cooking without the painstaking effort of custom-blending, roasting and grinding spices for every dish prepared. And even more strangely, most curry powder doesn't even contain curry leaves!

    Curry powder isn't named for the curry leaf. Both get their names from the Hindi word kari, which basically means "sauce." Curry leaves are common in curries, but are not a defining element.
