In General, this is a traditional dish of Indian cuisine, adapted to the taste of Europeans (namely the British). Therefore, it is not as spicy as traditional Indian food. But, to my great regret, the traditional recipe for this dish is quite heavy for the stomach, it includes a huge amount of melted butter. I tried to adapt this recipe to keep the taste but make it much easier.

Step by step instruction of cooking The butter chicken almost dietary
Fry the chicken on high heat until Golden brown. At this time open a jar of tomatoes (like me), or three tomatoes on a grater.
Fried chicken add the tomatoes. If the tomatoes are very fleshy, and liquid enough, add a quarter Cup of water. Leave to boil and be a little bit (3-4 minutes)
Add the nuts to the chicken with the sauce, again leave for a few minutes be ( it took me about 5 minutes).
Add salt to taste almost finished the dish.
Add 125 grams of good natural thick yoghurt
Bring to a boil
Add 1 teaspoon sugar (more if the tomatoes are very acidic)
And 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Stir, bring everything to a boil and switch off.
Give at least 10-15 minutes to stand up, and you can bring to the table. Usually the butter chicken served with fresh rice, Indians eat it with unleavened bread naan. I prefer the rice.
Ideally, the sauce should be very much. Therefore, the dish is served in two dishes - one chicken in a fragrant sauce, the second rice, so everyone can adjust the amount of sauce in the rice.
