Meat Free Butter Chicken

This Meat-free Butter Chicken recipe was a finalist in the Fry's Curry Cook-Off competition. It's an Indian style curry that uses mock chicken. Murgh makhani, as it is know in India, is a traditional dish from Punjab. Butter chicken is usually served with naan bread, roti, paratha and/or steamed rice.
