Butter Chicken (Indian Dish)
An elegant indian dish that is very mild for those who are not into spicy foods. Very good dish to introduce those to this particular cuisine."Very good meal. As described, it's not very spicy. Next time, I'll add more chili powder. Still very delicious. Also, I used basmati rice, which I think made the dish slightly more authentic." - ahunter5
