One of our favorite things to order for takeout is Indian, but we don’t get the chance to get takeout as easily anymore. Living in a small town in country, our takeout option are very limited. Butter chicken is our favorite order from our favorite restaurants so I decided to make a fast easy version that we can make at home with out to much hassle but getting as much flavor as traditional curries we get in the city as I possible could. This variation of butter chicken has been a trial and error project of mine for a few months now. I am very happy with how it’s going. This recipe is a mild curry but you can easily add a little more heat to it by adding come more cayenne pepper to your own liking.
