Aloo Butter Masala / Potato Butter Masala / Aloo Makhani Recipe / Butter Potatoes


Butter masala is my favorite go to curries even in restaurant or take away, even it is paneer or chicken. I simply love it. The simply silky gravy with a little tangyness and sweetness makes it so unique and mouth watering. Recently i found the trick for making the perfect butter chicken.
