Vegan Butter Chicken – “Wait! What? Vegan Butter Chicken ?”

A real soul food. Rich and spicy with the perfect chicken meat substitution, which won’t make you miss anything.

Jackfruit and Chickpeas for texture and nutrients!


I have to admit that i have never tried the original recipe, but the taste is approved and highly recommended by my roommate, who had the pleasure of taste-testing. We had a real Indian feast, that day! Couldn’t get enough of all this goodness.

For the newbies beneath us- jackfruit has become a real must-have in the vegan cuisine. Its texture and ability to soak up any flavor preferred. Thereore, it is your own effort that you have to put in to make it taste amazing 😉

So, this is one of many indian recipes which we have already posted now. I am smelling an indian feast article soon 😉
