Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

IngredientsMARINADE

  • 1/2 cup plain yoghurt full fat
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp tumeric powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala (Note 1)
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder or cayenne pepper powder (Note 2)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ginger freshly grated
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1.5 lb / 750 g chicken thigh fillets cut into bite size pieces

CURRY

  • 2 tbsp (30 g) ghee or butter OR 1 tbsp vegetable oil (Note 3)
  • 1 cup tomato passata (aka tomato puree) (Note 4)
  • 1 cup heavy / thickened cream (Note 5)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt

TO SERVE

  • Basmati or other Rice
  • Coriander/cilantro (optional)

Instructions

  1. Optional blitz: for an extra smooth sauce combine the Marinade ingredients (except the chicken) in a food processor and blend until smooth. (I do not do this)
  2. Marinade: Combine the Marinade ingredients with the chicken in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours (minimum 3 hrs).
  3. Cook chicken: Heat the ghee (butter or oil) over high heat in a large fry pan. Take the chicken out of the Marinade but do not wipe or shake off the marinade from the chicken (but don t pour the Marinade left in the bowl into the fry pan).
  4. Place chicken in the fry pan and cook for around 3 minutes or until the chicken is white all over (it doesn t really brown because of the Marinade).
  5. Sauce: Add the tomato passata cream sugar and salt. Turn down to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Do a taste test to see if it needs more salt.
  6. Garnish with coriander/cilantro leaves if using. Serve with basmati rice.
  7. The Butter Chicken is pictured with my very easy No Yeast Flatbread and no-fry papadums (Note 5)
