Butter Chicken Recipe, Indian Butter Chicken Masala Recipe Featured

Written by  Jan 30, 2017

Butter Chicken Recipe: Butter Chicken is probably one of the most popular Indian chicken recipes liked by  all for its mild flavour and deliciously rich gravy. This is the most popular dish in Indian restaurants and so, this is a restaurant-style Butter Chicken Recipe.

When you talk to non-Indians about Indian food, one of the few dishes they immediately recall is Butter Chicken. They always know Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka, “Naan Bread’, and Biryani. When I ask about Idli and Dosa, I mostly get blank stares back. So when my colleagues ask for good Indian restaurant recommendations in Singapore, I know not to suggest Murugan Idli Kadai because they may not even recognize that as Indian food!

However, there’s really something very comforting about a good Butter Chicken Recipe. If cooked right, it pairs fabulously with some naan made on tawa, a simple vegetable pulao, or even plain rotis or chapatis. I have used cream in the gravy for this Butter Chicken but you can just as easily substitute that with some pureed cashew paste for a different flavour.

BUTTER CHICKEN RECIPE

Butter chicken is one of India's most popular chicken recipes, a mild curry with a tomato-onion-cream base and boneless chicken pieces cooked in it to perfection, as the Indian restaurants would say...

INGREDIENTS

  • 250 gm of boneless chicken, cubed
  • 2 onions, minced
  • 1 tomato, pureed
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste or sauce
  • 1 tbsp of butter, ghee, or oil
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp of minced ginger
  • 2 tsp of coriander powder
  • 1 tsp of chilli powder (use Kashmiri chilli powder for better results)
  • 1 tsp of garam masala or chicken masala
  • 1 large pinch of kasuri methi / dried fenugreek leaves
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 tbsp of cream or pureed cashew paste (soak and grind cashew nuts)
  • 1-2 tsp salt (adjust to taste)
  • ¼ tsp of turmeric powder
  • 1 small bunch of coriander leaves / cilantro, for ganish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat the butter in a pan and add the minced onions. Fry until golden brown
  2. Add the ginger, garlic, coriander, chilli powder, turmeric, and salt. Fry for a minute until fragrant
  3. Add the pureed tomato and tomato paste and cook for 3-4 mins until the mixture bubbles uniformly
  4. Thrown in the kasuri methi, milk, and the cubed chicken. Cook covered for 8-10 mins until the chicken is soft. The chicken will let out more water, just check once or twice in between and give the curry a stir. Keep the flame on sim
  5. When the chicken is cooked soft, open the lid and cook for a further minute or two. If the gravy is too thick, add some water at this stage
  6. When done, add the garam masala or chicken masala and the cream or cashew paste. Give it a good stir, but don't boil
  7. Adjust salt, garnish with the coriander leaves, and remove from fire
  8. Serve hot with tawa naan, vegetable pulao, or jeera rice
