How to make authentic butter chicken :
  • In a bowl take all the ingredients under the marinate head and the chicken pieces.The chicken pieces should be 1″ inch in size. Mix well and keep aside for atleast 2 – 3 hrs
  • Blanch, peel and puree the tomatoes. Keep aside.
  • Soak the cashewnuts for 2 – 3 hrs in hot water and then strain and grind the cashewnuts into a fine paste.
  • For the curry heat the pan and add butter and immediately add the garlic paste.
  • Now add the sliced green chilly. Also add cumin powder, red chilly powder and salt. Add 1 tblsp water and mix well.
  • Add the tomato puree and cook till the gravy leaves the side.
  • Lower the flame and add the cashewnut paste and stir constantly.
  • Now add the tomato ketchup, sugar and 1/4 cup water.
  • Meanwhile in a separate pan shallow fry the marinated chicken pieces for 4 – 5 minutes. If overcooked then the chicken will get hard and stiff. Keep aside.
  • Once the gravy comes to a boil add the chicken pieces. And cook for a minute.
  • Now lower the flame add the milk and stir well. Cook for another minute and then add the cream. Mix well
  • Now add the garam masala and crushed fenugreek leaves. Mix well.
  • Transfer the chicken to a serving bowl and garnish with chopped coriander leaves, crushed fenugreek leaves and swirls of cream.
  • Restaurant style Indian butter chicken is ready to be served with naan or tandoori roti. Authentic butter chicken is a very high calorie dish yet very very tasty. So dig in
  • Note:
    1. Milk should be at room temperature before adding to the gravy.
    2. Add milk and cream at low flame only.
    3. Add the garam masala only at the end.
