Butter Chicken

Location: Culinary / Main-dishes / Butter Chicken

While I was in Dubai, ‘KFC’ and butter-chicken from ‘Sind Punjab restaurant’ used to be my fav. My mom had tried many recipes for Butter chicken but nothing tasted close to that from ‘Sind Punjab’.

One day, one of my seniors, from school in NIMS mentioned, they had prepared butter chicken for their home-science class.  So I noted down the recipe from her and gave it to my mom. The outcome was a success, I think Lucy Mam was their home-science teacher, so thanks to her we have reduced our visits to ‘Sind-Punjab’ restaurant 🙂

Its a very easy recipe. Also I have prepared it several times, replacing chicken pieces with either potatoes ,  cauliflower or Paneer(cottage cheese). Here in Mauritius we get veg roasted chicken, veg fish, veg meat, veg prawns and what not :-), its all soya or wheat based products. So I get to eat veg butter chicken here 🙂


For chicken roast

Chicken breast pieces –  10 small pieces

Curd – 2 tablespoon

Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp

Pepper – 1 & 1/2 tsp

Orange red food color – a pinch/ 1/4 tsp

salt as per taste

– Marinate using curd, ginger garlic paste, pepper, orange red food color and salt

– keep it for minimum 1/2 an hour

– You can bake the marinated chicken in oven for 15 min or fry it in pan. I use a non-stick pan and very less oil

For gravy

Tomatoes – 4 medium sized

Green chilly – 3 nos

Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp

Cooking cream –  1 cup

orange red food color – a pinch

– make a paste of tomatoes, green chillies and ginger garlic paste.

– then cook it in a saucepan, let it boil for 5 min

– add chicken pieces and let it cook further 5 min

– add cooking cream, and food color

– add a little water if  gravy is too thick and boil for 2 min

– add butter while serving

– I prefer butter chicken with Nan or bread. It doesnt go well with chapathi or rice
