Butter Chicken


Okay, so I chickened out. I was going to make Butter Chicken for Bungo but I thought he should try the real stuff first.

We went to Curry Express at the Lansdowne Mall foodcourt for lunch. I used to go to Curry Express all the time with co-workers when I worked in that area. Their beef curry and lamb curry was a bit off today. =P But the Butter Chicken was good. I was thinking that we could get a tub of it to mix with rice for lunch during the week.
