Classic Butter Chicken
Butter chicken is considered the king of Indian curries and we really feel that ours lives up to this title! It is a harmonious balance of spices, tomatoes, a bit of cream and, of course, butter. Even though it is called Butter Chicken, it is also delicious with other meats, seafood and vegetables.
– 1 packet The Spice Tailor Classic Butter Chicken
– 250g skinless chicken breast/thigh (or boneless pork, seafood, duck, paneer, mushrooms)
– 1 tsp. vegetable or olive oil
– Handful of fresh coriander to serve
Cut the chicken into generous pieces.
Heat 1 tsp. of oil in a pan, add the spices and herbs from the spice pouch, including the chilli if you want extra heat. Cook for 20 seconds. Add the meat, prawns or vegetables and brown lightly before adding the base sauce.
Simmer for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the main sauce along with a splash of hot water (and fish if using) and simmer for another 3-5 minutes or until the fresh ingredient is cooked through. Stir in the coriander and serve.
Ring the changes…
Add large cubes of capsicums and red onions with the chicken. Instead of chicken try making the dish with some lovely large raw prawns or even a mixture of seafood.
Vegetarian… make the dish with 225g of cubed paneer and cook until soft.
Leftovers… use any leftovers in an amazing hot chicken baguette. Spread one side with butter and the other with some coriander chutney (find in the Cookbook at TheSpiceTailor.com) and fill with the butter chicken.Sydney Unleashed is one of Australia’s premier entertainment publications exploring the latest in lifestyle trends.
