Butter chicken and Chicken Tikka Masala our most favourite dish and happens to be the most ordered dish as well Chicken tikka masala is nothing but chicken tikkas in a creamy tomato based gravy that is a tad bit spicy compared to butter chicken ..Chicken Tikka Masala goes well with Naans Tandoori Rotis or Jeera rice  Try this for dinner parties or for weekend meal you and your folks will love it ..This is my style of preparing this dish and we love it more than the one served in restaurants.
