MAKE IT CHILD-FRIENDLY
Omit or reduce the ground chillies, and maybe serve some Pickled Chillies on the side for the adults.
A condiment which I find obligatory to serve alongside Butter Chicken is Pickled Onions. Simply slice 2-3 red onions into half moons, and cover them with lime juice (fresh or bottled). Leave to steep for at least a few hours at room temperature, or overnight in the fridge. The onions will soften as they steep, and the lime juice will turn bright pink from the onions.
