Vegan Butter Chicken

Welcome to the world of Vegan Indian Cooking.  One of my favorite types of food is Indian Cuisine.  About 90% of the Indian population in India are Vegetarian.  The country is filled with amazing fresh spices and vegetables.  I aspire to travel there soon to take in all that the country has to offer, and eat great Indian food.  I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did…….  Enjoy!
