We regularly eat a curry here at home. Besides the fact that it has plenty of flavor, it is also nice and easy to make. I tried a new vegetable spice paste. The Butter Chicken herb paste, and made a delicious butter chicken recipe with it. And that certainly worked out well, although a classic curry like this does not contain vegetables, I did add them. If you fancy a delicious butter chicken, but vegetarian, then you have to try this curry with chickpeas and coconut milk.
