    currybunny's Note:

    The Australian Women's Weekly version of this classic curry. Can easily be halved. Make this a day ahead to let the curry flavours develop, serve with saffron rice and chapatis. I'm not a fan of dark meat so I normally make my butter chicken with breast meat, diced.

      This is the easiest butter chicken I have prepared and the taste was not compromised, as it was scrumptious. Followed the instructions as is, however did not allow the mixture to sit for 3 hours. Served it with 'Rice Pilaf' Thank you for the recipe.

      Wonderful flavor! This pleased everyone including a VERY picky three year old - that promptly announced this was his new favorite recipe. I did not marinate the chicken and I could not tell the difference. To save time, I browned the chicken in the pan (removed it) and then added the spices to the melted butter. After about a minute I put the chicken back in the pan and added the tomato paste, puree, stock and vinegar and followed the directions from there adding the yogurt with the cream. Thanks Beck for a truly lovely dinner!

      This is pretty good, just not quite what I was looking for. This wasn't the same as what we get in the restaurants up here.
