Indian food is as good as the spices you use.

It is important to match the right spices with the type of food for best results. Using spices in cooking is important because they have an impressive list of phytonutrients, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and essential oils that are essential for overall wellness.

This authentic Indian dish is made with the right spices but without the extra fats that traditional butter chicken would be made with, such as butter or ghee. Just serve with basmati rice.
