Butter Chicken (Or Cauliflower) With Cashews

75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
15 ingredients
4 servings
I developed this recipe from Butter Chicken (also called Chicken Makhani) recipes in order to make a vegetarian version with Cauliflower, but this sauce works just as well with the traditional meat base. You can control the spiciness level depending on what type of hot red chili powder you add; certainly feel free to add more than 1 teaspoon if you like a lot of heat, but mix it in with some sweet paprika (or use only paprika) if you like it mild.
