Excellent, easy butter Chicken,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kitchens of India Paste for Butter Chicken Curry, 3.5-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6) (Grocery)
The best butter chicken you ever had!
Start with a medium SWEET (very important) onion and 2 - 3 cloves of garlic minced. Sautee in butter, very slowly while cutting chicken into 1" to 2" cubes (small because it cooks faster). Add the chicken to the onion/garlic sautee and add 2 tsp turmeric (or to taste) and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (more or less to taste).
Start cooking your rice at this time.
Cook over medium heat (don't burn the garlic) until chicken is done (5 to 10 minutes). Pre-mix the Kitchens of India Butter Chicken paste in a small bowl using hot water until smooth and add the mixture to the pan. Cook down to desired consistency.
Optional: add tomato paste, plain yogurt or cream cheese (separately or in any combination). Or add a fresh mango cut into small pieces for "Mango Chicken".
This makes a truly restaurant-class Indian dish and takes just 30 - 40 minutes from concept to meal. Serve with a small salad, fresh veggies and nan for a complete meal that is a real treat! Serves four (or two really hungry people). Double the recipe for 4 or more - the leftovers are just as good as the dinner and probably won't last until morning.
