Fast, easy, very good! I used sour cream since I had no yoghurt - it was delicious. Thanks so much for posting this.
We absolutely adored this dish! Funny story... My brother-in-law lives in India, and he flew in for a suprise visit the same night that I was cooking this. He knocked on our door and came inside and the first thing he said was 'it smells like you're cooking Indian food in here'. What a coincidence :) He passed however, and exclaimed that he was 'ready to eat some American food for once' - LoL :D I made and used Quick Garam Masala and instead of cardamom pods (couldn't find any!) I used 6 teaspoons of ground cardamom. I served this with Butternut Squash With Cumin Couscous. Perfect!
Tastes just like restaurant butter chicken-delicious. An easy to follow recipe that we both loved so much thank you!
I just made this. My husband and I didn't think it was as good as the Butter Chicken we have had in restaurants. The tomato taste was stronger than the restaurants and it wasn't very spicy. It needs something else in it.
Disgusting waste of ingredients. Rated five stars by those who have no sense of taste, smoke, have never had really good Indian food or douse everything they eat in ketchup. Don't waste your time or ingredients with this one.
I have not tried this recipe, I just wanted to say that Butter Chicken most certainly did originate in India! It's Chicken Tikka Masala that originated in the UK... they are sort of similar but definitely not the same.
I think this recipe was pretty good though I would halve the amount of cardamom. For those who commented that it is a little bland, I think the recipe needs some demi-glace. Next time I make this recipe, I will add some. I think it will add some depth and needed saltiness in the recipe.
I really loved this recipe, and I only made a few adjustments. First I boiled my own tomatoes, took the skin off and pureed them and added these instead of canned tomatoes. i also added an extra half tsp of sugar and also a little salt. I didn't have any cream, so I used unsweetened coconut cream instead, and it turned out very delicious! We ate the chicken with fresh homemade roti.
this was a great fast butter chicken recipe! will make again, would like to add some more heat to it, maybe a few diced green chilis in with the spices?
This was the second time I made this, since my stove was mis-behaving the first time, and I had to improvise between stovetop and microwave. It was fabulous both times, though. I made it with shrimp, which we often prefer to chicken, in curries. I also used a 410 gr of chopped tomatoes, and a 110 gr can of tomato paste. I found it well-spiced and pleasantly creamy, and will definitely make it again!
