Day 1- Butter Chicken

When I got up this morning I had no idea where to follow my nose today.  But, per usual, I thought through the day's dinner plan.  On Sunday 2 of my 3 children had virtually inhaled Butter Chicken from Aroma, an Indian eatery at Concord Mills.  Why not make it myself?

After a quick Pinterest search I had a recipe, but not all the ingredients.  I considered going to Harris Teeter to fill in the gaps.  But I have embarked on a 100 day adventure!!!  Sooooo, why not finally explore that Indian grocery on exit 33 in Mooresville?

Suddenly, there was no reason not too.  I needed to know the difference between Masala Tea (which I had) and Garam Masala (which I didn't have.)  The nice young lady at Yogi Grocery guided me through the difference.

Could I substitute one for the other?  She was firm.  No.  And at $3.99 for 12 ounces, who cares?  

The store was clean and well organized.  Here are the spoils of my trip, below.

OOOH, the butter chicken is almost ready.

I added curry powder to the rice, why not?
