Vegan Butter Chicken

Butter chicken is a North- Indian specialty, that makes my vegan friends cheat their vegan diets, once in a while. While they prefer to cheat by hogging on ‘Shahi Paneer’, I believe a close alternative to butter chicken, would help vegans avoid cheat days without any guilt. The base for the ‘vegan chicken’ is something I got inspired by my grandmother. Because the ‘kayast’ community is known to serve dry jackfruit dish for special occasions, specially to vegetarians as a meat substitute.
