We are all very fond of the famous butter chicken and you order it all the time when going to the restaurants for a fine dining experience. The perfect rice, buttery and crispy chicken, and vegetables give the perfect experience that a foodie dies for. But what if you can make it at home? Just the perfect and yummy blend of flavors that will call your family to the dining table. The recipe is so simple and you do not have to worry about having or using so many ingredients.
Now if you have someone in the family who is allergic to eggs that don’t dip in them. You can just dip it in plain yogurt so the crumbs can hold onto it. It is that everyone can enjoy this recipe. Also, if you don’t want to use the crumbs you can use flour but the recipe’s actual flavors will not come. So, we do advise to at least try once our way and then customize it.
