We recently came across a video where a chef has gone some extra miles to experiment with the dish - he has prepared a creamy ice cream with butter chicken.
The video, uploaded on Instagram by 'foodvoodindia', features chefs adding scoops of frozen butter chicken puree in a bowl and then spicy green chutney on the top. The chefs then add a side of biscotti and serve the guests. "Would you want to try this Butter Chicken Ice cream?" reads the caption of the video. Take a look:
