My boyfriend is Indian.... and he has tons of Indian friends. Every recipe of butter chicken we have ever eaten is bright orange.... not creamy yellow-ish, like the picture. Sometimes, the color is closer to a dark yellow, but it's usually more of an orange. I am 100% sure I'm talking about butter chicken, merg makhani (sp).

Chicken Tikka Masala should be dark-orange/red in color.... different dish.

I'm not the picky one. I don't care what color it turns out, as long as it tastes good. It's my BF who's a huge pain in the butt about food. I normally cook for myself and he does his own thing anyways... but it would be nice to make something that we can eat together one day.

I swear... if I have to add food coloring, I'll do it.
