I want to make one of these two dishes tomorrow. I have a great Indian/Pakistanian grocery store which I plan on going to purchase any ingredients. I see several recipes for both which are hugely different. Especially for Butter Chicken which tends to be either really sweet or not reading the different recipes. I never had either as I tend to order the tandoori or other clay oven dishes. I don't like sweet dishes but is Butter Chicken supposed to be sweet or not? What are typical side dishes? I already have a recipe for naan and will make it with black onion seeds.

Any tips or favorite recipes?

I am not fan of butter chicken, it is too buttery & has bit of sweetness to it. I like Tikka Masala, that is my usual dish in indian restaurant. I would say try Tikka Masala, it is bit easier to make too. I tried making it once & never tried it again. I have had spicy and mild spicy version of Tikka masala

Side dish would be: naan & some type of vegy dish & maybe rice if you don't like naan much.
There are several vegy dish that you can make: mix vegetable dish or Chana masala (chickpeas curry) or plain ol lentil soup

Let us know how it goes
