Although it's called "Butter Chicken" don't let it confuse you, it has no butter in the ingredients.
Made it with monkfish. I changed the recipe a bit: added about 5 big garlic cloves along with the onion, 1 tablespoon butter along with the oil, didn't use cream, just the yogurt and 3 big cut up tomatoes instead of the condensed tomato. Next time I might add a bit of white wine...
