We get take out from time to time for the take out and are fixated on one dish, the butter chicken. The large is only $12.95 and more than enough for Sheila and I.
What I like about it is the rich sauce of which there is always more than enough to soak are rice in. The chicken is also tender and not over cooked, which given that is effectively a stew is good work on their part.
One of the reasons we like it is because they clearly use fresh spices and I would not be surprised to learn they use freshly ground spices. The coriander, cumin and turmeric all come through strong and bright but not overpowering.
Butter chicken can be greasy and heavy, in fact that was past experience with it in the UK. When I lived in London I became convinced that butter chicken was crappy version of chicken tikka. Sheila convinced me to try it. Given that Kuku's has chicken tikka on the menu, I should try that some time soon to compare it to what I had in the UK where it is the national dish of the country.

Could I do better at home? Even though it seems simple enough, I doubt I could achieve something like their butter chicken.
