Now a dish that requires butter chicken will require a certain amount of time, and this pasta is no different. So if you are making this fusion dish for an occasion or party at home, better to prep a bit in advance. It could be to perhaps make either the chicken or the pasta beforehand. So in this, we make everything fresh right from the spaghetti pasat to the butter chicken. Better to have the chicken marinated for about 3-4 hours. Next, heat oil in a large skillet and cook the marinated chicken with the spices, tomatoes and oodles of cream. Meanwhile, soak the spaghetti noodles in hot water till they come apart, drain and keep aside. 

When the butter chicken is ready, spoon the butter chicken sauce on the noodles and garnish with cilantro to serve hot. Alternatively, you can also toss the noodles into the sauce and cook on high heat for a few minutes to evenly coat the noodles with the sauce.
