How to start this authentic, adventurous Butter Chicken 

First, Soak the solid chicken shapes with salt, roasted masala, lime juice, and turmeric powder. Allow it to rest for 1 hr. After soaking, barbecue the chicken shapes in the broiler on kebab sticks or place then in a grill and barbecue each side on medium fire for 2 - 3 minutes smothered in 1TBSP.  If you have an oven, preheat it to 220 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes and afterward barbecue the chicken shapes for 15 minutes while you work on the sauce. Meanwhile, add oil and butter to a pan and sauté onion till it becomes light brown. This will add a rich sweetness to the taste. After the onion turns light brown, add the ginger-garlic paste and cook till its crudeness vanishes. Add the tomato paste on low to medium fire and cook till the oil isolates. This should take 15 minutes. Now it's time to add the excess turmeric powder, cumin powder, Kashmiri red bean stew powder, and cook everything for 5 minutes on medium heat. At this point, the chicken is barbecued either in the pan or oven. Add it to the sauce.  Coat the chicken shapes in the sauce and let it cook briefly before adding some water. After adding water, heat it to the point of boiling, let it stew for another 10 minutes, and afterward, add the cream. Save a little to garnish at the end. When you add the cream, the dish begins looking whitish; however, on the off chance that you allow the curry to stew, it will start turning light pinkish/pinkish shade. Now, add the garam masala and salt according to your preference, and don't forget to add fenugreek leaves!
