Indian Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani)

In this video, you’ll see how to make homemade Indian butter chicken, the creamy, spicy specialty of Indian restaurants. Though the title may suggest something else, this simple version of a classic Indian chicken dish calls for only 2 tablespoons of butter and uses nonfat yogurt and half-and-half to create a wonderfully spiced tomato sauce. Watch the video, then get DHANO923’s top-rated recipe for Murgh Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken). Serve over basmati rice with warm naan bread for soaking up all the delicious sauce.

Indian chili powder is just regular chili powder. You can substitute cayenne. Tandoori masala powder is a little more complicated (unless you have an indian grocery story near you). It's a blend of spices - you can probably google to get an idea. It doesn't have to be exact and different people will have slightly different "recipes" for the masala.
