When I eat at an Indian restaurant, the dish I always want to order is Butter Chicken! It’s my favorite flavor combo.
While in India this past week, our friend Flora shared her recipe and method for making this classic Indian entree. We love Flora’s Butter Chicken!
Kashmiri chilli powder adds spice to the recipe without extra heat. If you can’t find this spice, you can substitute with a small amount of cayenne pepper. Garam Masala powder is also a flavor highlight.
Some recipes call for cream, others use coconut milk. We like adding both coconut milk and cream. A touch of coconut gives depth and a slight sweetness while cream gives good flavor and velvety texture.
Butter Chicken is excellent served with naan bread or over rice. Indian Cuisine is known for its bounty of fresh ingredients and this recipe is no exception. The fresh tomatoes, garlic, ginger, and other spices elevate the marinade and sauce.
