This is the best butter chicken. This recipe is from Moti M,ahal the first restaurant which innovated butter chicken in India. This is the traditional way in which the real butter chicken is prepared. It is one of my most treasured recipes that I'm sharing with you. Please do not substitute the ingredients--don't use yogurt for cream etc. Butter chicken is a treat. Enjoy it the traditional way !!!!
