Butter Chicken – a chef recipe!
As much as I love making food at the house, sometimes I find the list of ingredients daunting. It’s easy to cook once I gather all the ingredients, but I usually need to catch up because it requires a trip to the grocery store.
Butter Chicken is an exception. I was elated when I discovered a Chef’s recipe for Butter Chicken and realized how simple it is. But more importantly, you can get all the ingredients from any shop.
- Make Butter Chicken Marinade and marinate chicken for 3+ hours (overnight is best)
- Cook chicken
- Make Sauce in the same skillet
The secret to the tender-infused chicken is a spice-infused yogurt marinade made with fresh garlic, ginger, lemon juice, and spices. The spices in Butter Chicken are turmeric, gorom mosla, chili cumin, and powder.
You don’t need copious amounts of butter for a tasty Butter Chicken.
Butter Chicken sauce gets its richness from cream. While many restaurants take it over the top by stirring a generous amount of butter into the Sauce at the end, I find it rich enough. The Butter Chicken experience and flavor are less oily than the restaurant taste.
The Sauce will primarily be a pale orange color. Still, as it simmers and thickens, it will deepen to a rich orange color.
What to serve with Butter Chicken recipetin eats.
To make a proper side, feast, and starters are essentials Because each curry needs papadums to look up details and naan to scoop up the Sauce.
No-fry quick papadums – microwave them. Put the papadums around the edge of the microwave turntable and cook at a very high temperature for 45 seconds to 1.5 minutes or until they are puffed up. They’ll be soft while warm but crisp up as soon as they cool down. They don’t enlarge as much as when deep fried, but neither will your thighs.
Proper naan A butter chicken recipe in the works for five years, I’m thrilled to finally share my suitable naan recipe that can be easily made at home (no tandoor needed!)
Shortcut “naan” – For a more straightforward, no-yeast flatbread that’s just as good, my Easy Yeast-free Flatbread tastes very similar to authentic naan (except it’s much faster). Try to tell me this doesn’t look like it belongs in this feast!
And it’s MADE for looking up details in that creamy Butter Chicken recipetin eats Sauce.
Readers also have asked for Vegetable side options – to add greens to a meal. Asian food doesn’t have fresh side salads like in Western cuisine. Partly because so much Asian food is vegetarian, anyone gets plenty of veggies in your daily diet!
But here are some Vegetable Side Options anybody can mix on the side of Butter Chicken recipetin eats:
Cucumber salad with lemon yogurt dressing – not only another refreshing salad that goes perfectly with curries but also dinner;
Just a few sliced wedges and cucumber of tomato – not dressed. It’s a relaxed, friendly, refreshing side.
Thoran-style Carrot and Cabbage Salad with Coconut is crunchy, fresh, and shot through with gentle spices and coconut!
For a more straightforward cabbage salad, try my Everyday Cabbage Salad.

- Garam Masala is a spice mix readily available at markets nowadays. You will find it in the spice section, which costs around the same as other spices.
- Pure chili powder – This is not chili powder as Americans know it! American Chili Powder contains things other than ground-dried chili. Use pure cayenne pepper or chili powder to mix a spice kick. The spiciness is mild.
- Ghee is a clarified butter used in cooking. Hicken: This recipe can be replaced with butter or almost any neutral-flavoured cooking oil.
- Tomato passata is pureed tinned tomatoes. Nowadays, it is readily available in markets, usually alongside pasta sauces. It costs a little more, sometimes the same, as canned tomatoes. It is called Tomato Puree in the United States of America.
If anyone can’t find it, puree canned tomatoes using a blender. This recipe will also work with “Tomato Sauce” in America.
- For a lighter version, use OR; for a more delicate version, use 3/4 cup creamy cream + 1/4 cup milk (total fat or low fat)
- No Fry Quick Papadums – Place store-bought raw papadums (cheap, around USD 1) in the microwave on the edge of the turntable. Then microwave for 46 seconds to 1 minute or until puffed up. They will crisp up when they cool.
- Adapted from a recipe by an Australian chef and restaurateur, Luke Mangan. The only adjustments I made were adding salt and providing the cream’s lighter option.
