Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken is most Australians favorite Indian dish. It is a full flavored dish that complements the chicken well. It can be made as mild or spicy as you wish by adjusting the cayenne.  At Pure Catering we serve with basmati rice and puppadam.

Butter Chicken

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan for the butter chicken over medium high heat. Saute shallot and onion until soft and translucent. Stir in butter, lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, 1 teaspoon garam masala, chili powder, cumin and bay leaf. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in cream and yogurt. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Season with salt pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil for the butter chicken in a large heavy pan over medium heat. Cook chicken until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat, and season with 1 teaspoon garam masala and cayenne. Stir in a few spoonfuls of sauce, and simmer until liquid has reduced, and chicken is no longer pink. Stir cooked chicken into sauce.
  3. Mix together cornflour and water, then stir into the sauce. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.
