Butter Frog Legs

Did you know that most commercially sold frog legs come from India and Bangladesh?  When you think of frog legs, you think battered and deep fried.  Since everyone says frog legs taste just like chicken, I decided to put that to the test.  Butter chicken is a staple in Indian cooking, so I did this with frog legs; the results were delicious, much more flavor than chicken. I hope you like it.

1/2 teaspoon garam masala
