Perhaps the greatest curry in the entire world, Butter Chicken has devout worshippers. Of course, I’m one of them, I have to have Butter Chicken at least once a week. The Punjabi aunty living next door often taunts me about my love for this curry, she never fails to point out that I should have been born a Punjabi. Simply for the sake of Butter Chicken, I grudgingly agree.
