what's the difference between "butter chicken"

alkapal | Sep 25, 2008 07:49 AM

and chicken tikka masala, except for the *butter*?

they both have creamy, tomato-y sauces, tandoori grilled chicken (boneless), onion, ginger, cardamom, cumin, fenugreek, etc.

(i love both dishes; i eat both at restos; i've cooked them (well, using a grill, not a tandoor -- oh, how i wish!); and i've perused many and various cookbook and online recipes for both dishes.)

isn't butter the only difference? if not, tell me what i'm overlooking, please!
(is it the chicken marinade? -- seems the same except maybe not ginger in regular tandoori vs. tikka?)
