Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken, I am sure, is everyones all time favorite dish, and each one has their own 'adda' (place) where you get the best butter chicken. Being a chef and a foodie, I love eating and exploring for food, A couple of months back, I was actually on a hunt to find the best butter chicken in town and must have tried eating at around 18 places for it and came up with a conclusion, that homemade butter chicken is the best and that to when I make it, as I'm sitting at home and enjoying it while watching television, talking to family.
Its totally another experience sitting together and having it without having to roam around much.

But if you know where I can find the best butter chicken in Mumbai. do comment below.
