Butter Chicken Gravy / Restaurant Style Butter Chicken – Diabetic Friendly

Standard

As I have been compiling Diabetic Friendly recipes for my Diabetic Hubby (type -2) from my grand ma, mother and friends, sometimes I too create. But being diabetic is not about omitting sugar, but the it purely depends on the quantity/portion of the food we consume. Being a food blogger, I could never imagine of creating a recipe based with nutrition, calories so and so, but now I would say my dream came true. Yeah, I have been collaborated with Apollo sugar for compiling DIABETIC friendly recipes curated by their Dietician Ms. Madhavi.

As a start, I love to try and share a Non-Veg recipe which I have been suggested by few of my readers – Butter Chicken Gravy. Butter Chicken is a north Indian dish, but loved by everyone right from the kid to the elder. They can be served as lunch, dinner with nan, roti, paratha and fried rice. Because of their richness, they can be served for festivals, guests and simply for our family. Marination takes a main part in this dish, and so margination consumes 3 to 4 hrs and rest of the process is just completed in minutes. Let me share the recipe…
