but a recipe to remember

Butter Chicken

olive oil with a splash of peanut oil
1kg chicken meat (we threw the bones in another pot to make soup)
Fry and set aside

some butter
2t garam masala
2t paprika
2t ground coriander
1T fresh ginger, grated
1/2t chili powder (or more or less)
1 cinnamon stick (or a pinch of cinnamon)
seeds from 6 cardamom pods
Fry for a minute or so

130g tomato paste
Add and stir

400g tin chopped tomatoes
1T sugar
Add with the chicken. Simmer a wee while.

1/4C plain yoghurt (we used coconut cream coz we didn’t have yoghurt)
1/2C cream
1T lemon juice (which I forgot to add)
Stir these in just before serving

We made a triple batch, which served 27 people and there was still enough left over for a Dadda’s lunch and to top a pizza for dinner.



  1. This one is going in my recipe collection…….it was delicious!

  2. p.s. Happy Birthday to the Birthday Boy for today…….a bit late I know but hope he had a HAPPY day
