Butter Chicken Masala | North Indian Style | Restaurant Style

Butter Chicken Masala. A delightful famous Chicken recipe. From couple of months I was thinking to post this recipe. But somehow it would not work! So this evening I got the chance to share the recipe of Butter chicken masala. This recipe I learned from one Bengali cookery show. But I made some changes on it. In case of garam masala I prepared it at home that has little different flavors which increase the taste of Chicken butter masala. Trust me it is exclusively Restaurant style Chicken Butter Masala. After preparing in this way you will say the same. So I claim it is an Authentic food spicy and lovely recipe. With tandoori roti and butter naan it goes marvelous. But you should use the all the spices which I mentioned here...and for some ingredients I mentioned to use only Everest spices no other brands please.. So Dearies a North Indian Restaurant Style Butter Chicken Masala is waiting for you...
