Daksha’s Gourmet Spices- Butter Chicken

Butter ChickenDaksha of Daksha’s Gourmet Spices, whom I had the pleasure of speaking with several times, is a woman who is clearly passionate about her spices. They are all natural, hand selected, hand sorted and cleaned, and individually ground and blended. There are several products available for purchase and all boast the same quality and authenticity. She chose the Butter Chicken for me to try and I can easily see why it is her best seller. Though there are a ton of different uses for this spice blend I went with the traditional preparation by following the directions included on the spice packaging. Seriously folks, when an Indian woman sends you an authentic Butter Chicken recipe, you follow it!

It’s heaven on a plate.  No joke- I’ve never had a butter chicken as good as this one.
