Butter Chicken / Murgh Makhani

We all know and love the velvety textured sauce of flavors and aromas that are sopped up with tender freshly baked naan or steamed basmati rice. This scrumptious dish originated in New Delhi giving a saucy home for tandoori chicken. As it is traditionally cooked in restaurants, pieces of tandoori chicken are cut up and folded into the luscious sauce.

The version I will be showing you today uses simple pantry ingredients (if you happen to cook Pakistani or Indian food often) and some boneless skinless chicken breast. There are a few steps to this recipe and it does require some time and love but it is worth it.

Butter Chicken - The Happy Foodie. In Australia butter chicken is as ubiquitous as chicken tikka masala is in the UK.

Butter Chicken - The Happy Foodie

I make the comparison with reason because they’re virtually the same dish. This does lead me to wonder whether all the stories about how chicken tikka masala was invented in the UK are true. The most common one of these is that it was a way Indian restaurants had of refreshing chicken cooked in the tandoor and not sold, i.e. by putting it in a spicy tomato sauce and reheating it. In fact, the practice of marinating chicken in spiced yogurt and cooking it in the intense dry heat of a tandoor, then adding a delicious sauce of slow cooked garlic and ginger with chilli, coriander, cinnamon, tomato, cream and a paste of cashew and pumpkin seeds, is an Amritsar classic. For the first marinade, mix the lime juice, chilli powder and salt together in a large bowl. For the second marinade, put all the ingredients apart from the chat masala into a mini food processor.
