Butter Chicken – Home Style

BUTTER CHICKEN Kids love Murgh Makhani; and of course, adults adore it too - me included!

Sindhi Kadhi

Kadhi has various versions, depending on the region. Some make it with onion pakora (onion fritters), plain pakoras or just add some readymade boondi if you don’t have time.
