Dhaba's star chef Ravi Saxena shared the recipe of white butter chicken, which you can easily try at home. You just have to first barbeque chicken pieces, then cook them in a pan with onion cashew paste, cream, and a handful of spices like green chillies, garlic and fenugreek leaves. Of course, no butter chicken is complete without a smattering of butter, so that goes in too.
This no-tomato white butter chicken doesn't require marination and also, it is not too heavy on spices - perfect for our craving for simple creamy and luscious chicken meal.
