Butter Chicken

Butter chicken as the name suggests is yummy buttery preparation of boneless chicken which is  famous worldwide due to its less spicy taste. Its rich texture and gravy makes it a hot favourite among Indians as well as Non - Indians alike. The thickness usually is  due to ground paste of cashewnuts .
