We absolutely have gone cray cray for curries this winter! ESPECIALLY when they are this easy!

Healthy Primal Butter Chicken Recipe 
We have this AMAZING curry place down the road from us and their entire menu is gluten free… which we totally love. It’s one of the take aways that doesn’t make us feel sick #winning! Yeeha! Because sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking, right?

Healthy Primal Butter Chicken Recipe
BUT for days when you DO feel like cooking up your own curry, maybe for a week worth of delish work lunches, or a fun friend gathering, this Healthy Primal Butter Chicken should be your go to recipe!

We vote serve this baby with a side of caulirice! OR Cauli Pita Bread (you can pretend it’s cauli naan bread! Yay for soaking up all the sauce!).

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla

p.s show us how you do curry… share it on social with #themerrymakersisters
