Butter Chicken

>> January 25, 2011

Butter Chicken is a mild and slightly creamy chicken preparation that can be had with any kind of Indian flat bread like chapati, naan or batura. The addition of butter may not sound healthy, but i feel it is okay to have a little bit of sinful indulgence once in a while.

the recipe

ingredients for the marinade

Chicken - 500 gms
Lemon juice (optional) - 1 tbsp
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Ginger Garlic  paste - 1 tbsp
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp

other ingredients

Butter - 1 + 1 + 1 tbsp
Onion - 1 (ground to paste)
Tomato puree - from 2 tomatoes
Kashmiri Chilie powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/4 - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves & stem, chopped - 1/4 cup
Cream - 1/4 cup
salt to taste

the method

Cut the chicken into small pieces. Marinate it with the ingredients for the marinade for 30 minutes.

Heat one tbsp butter in a heavy bottom pan / pressure cooked in low heat. Add the marinated chicken and saute for about ten minutes.

In another pan add one tbsp butter and pour the onion paste. Add some salt so that the water from the onion will evaporate quickly. Saute for a minute or until the raw smell has gone. Pour the tomato puree and add turmeric, coriander, chilly and cumin powder. Let it boil for a while. Add the sauted chicken and mix well. Bring it to a boil. When the chicken is almost done add the garam masala. Reduce to low heat and add the lightly beaten cream. Stir briskly so that the cream will completely blend with the gravy and will not curdle. Check salt and stir in the coriander leaves. As per butter chicken recipes a final dollop of butter is essential. I have also added the same but it melted and came on top of the curry as you can see in the picture. So it is thoroughly optional whether to add another tablespoon of butter before turning off heat. This is a very tasty preaparation. Enjoy as you please.

the same recipe can be followed to prepare Butter Paneer or even a Butter Potato ;-)
