Meal No. 442: Butter Chicken
I reached for the Betty Crocker Indian Home Cooking cookbook again, and this time I turned to the tomato-cream sauce concoction known as Butter Chicken. It's in the vein of chicken tikka masala but is definitely different...and it's considerably simpler to put together. Still, I did have to track down some dried fenugreek leaves (méthi), and I went ahead and bought (rather than made) some ghee clarified butter. Glad that Golden India has a market on one side of their restaurant.
And it was also really good, nestled on top of jasmine rice and with garlic naan and a tall cold glass of ice water on the side.
