    hard62's Note:

    Butter chicken must be one of the most popular dishes in Indian restaurants – and not without good reason, the combination of chicken and a creamy, spiced tomato sauce really is delicious.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large pan, then add the finely diced onion and chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft and clear but has not browned (about 5 minutes). Add the ginger, curry powder, cumin, coriander, and cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute longer.
    2. 2
      Add the chicken to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until it has lost its pinkness, then stir in the tomatoes (plus juice), evaporated milk and tomato paste. Allow the mixture to boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
    3. 3
      Stir in the remaining ingredients, adding the salt only if required, and reheat without boiling. Serve over steamed rice, accompanied with poppadums and/or naan bread (Naan is now available frozen in many supermarkets).

      I have never had "real" butter chicken but this version is delicious and, no doubt, a lot healthier. It's very nicely seasoned and gives a lot of flavor for a small amount of effort. Made for PAC, Fall 2012.
