Indian butter chicken is one of the classic dishes of Indian cuisine. The chicken is first marinated in yogurt and spices, while a range of spices and butter is used during the cooking process to add fragrance to the dish. The sour and sweet taste of the tomatoes adds extra flavor and depth. Serve with rice or roti to provide a mouthwatering and exotic treat. Only a small amount of chili heat is added, making it suitable for children and those not accustomed to spicy foods.
