Butter Chicken - Recipezaar

I came across this recipe sometime back, and it is probably my favorite Indian dish. Despite it's name, butter is not the primary flavor here. Instead there is a nice combination of spices that adds a lot of flavor. Served with some basmati rice and you have an authentic dish, that tastes great, and is quite filling. I hope you enjoy.
