In a video shared by food blogger Tandoori Biceps, we see a vendor take naan like taco shells. He then moves on to spread a generous serving of butter chicken gravy on each shell, making sure it covers all sides of the taco shell. He follows it by adding boneless butter chicken pieces and some raw sliced onions on the taco shells and seal it like a taco. The butter chicken taco is then grilled in a pizza oven till crisp to give a typical hard taco-like texture. Voila! Your butter chicken taco is ready to be devoured.
