I have someone in my house who oftenly demands to eat 'homemade-restaurant style' dinner in weekend ???. That's why last Sunday I had to make 'butter chicken' along with 'butter naan'. Nowadays 'butter chicken' is famous in all over the world. In Indian restaurants this is the mostly ordered dish. It has a tomato based, rich, velvety gravy and grilled, juicy chicken pieces. The combination was a total hit but you can also serve this with 'jeera rice', 'pulaao' or 'fried rice'. You can also make this dish with tandoori chicken, I have already post that recipe. Try this in your kitchen and serve a 'restaurant style dinner' to your family.
