Indian Butter Chicken

This is a delicious recipe that I found online through Pinterest. I do this a little differently than the recipe states. I season the chicken (I don't measure... just sprinkle a little garam masala, cardamom, coriander, salt and pepper) and brown it in the skillet first... remove from the pan and set aside for later. Then I move on with sauteing the veggies and spices... paying special attention to brown the spices and the tomato paste for deeper flavor. I also completely omit the blender step... I chop everything fine and I see no point in getting something else dirty! It is just wonderful!! Recipe source: www.melskitchencafe.com

ingredients

directions

  • In a large 12-inch skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until hot.
  • Add the onion, ginger and jalapeno. Stir often while cooking until the onion is translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Stir in garlic, garam masala, chili powder, cardamom, and coriander. Cook stirring, constantly for another minute.
  • Scrape the mixture into a blender or food processor and add tomato paste and chicken broth. Blend until the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the sauce back into the skillet and add the half and half.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat and add the chicken pieces and the salt and pepper. Stir.
  • Keep the sauce at a simmer, stirring occasionally, and cook for 10-15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has slightly thickened.
  • Cut remaining 3 tablespoons butter into chunks and stir into the sauce until melted.
  • Serve the chicken and sauce over hot jasmine or basmati rice. Garnish with fresh, chopped cilantro, if desired. Also, serve with Naan or Roti Paratha for dipping.
