Butter chicken Recipe

Chicken Recipe-Butter Chicken

Butter chicken

In India it is hard to find any Resturant which does have butter chicken in their menu card, a mild chicken curry with onion and tomato. It is one of the most popular dish among Indians. Since butter chicken is specially a non spicy dish so even kids love this dish. Butter Chicken is mainly preferred with Naan( type of Roti) , vegetable pulao or tandoori roti. 

In this preparation I have used pureed cashew paste rather than cream. It gives a different flavor. I normally make Butter Chicken for my son and pair it with vegetable pulao. Ingredients used in this recipe is quite simple and easily available. 


Chicken 1/2 kg with or without bones
Onion 3, minced
Tomato 2( pureed)
Tomato paste or sauce 1 tablespoon
Butter 1 tablespoon
Oil 1 tablespoon
Ginger paste 1 teaspoon
Garlic paste 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder 1 teaspoon
Garam masala powder 1/2 teaspoon
Kashmiri red chilli powder 1/2 teaspoon
Dried kasuri methi leaves 1/2 teaspoon
Cashew paste 2 teaspoon( soak and grind cashew nuts)
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder 1/2 teaspoon


Marinade the chicken with turmeric powder and little salt and keep for 5 min.
Heat oil in a pan. Put the chicken pieces and fry for 2min.
Now heat butter in a pan. Add the minced onions, ginger and garlic paste.
Fry till the raw smell disappears. 
Then add coriander powder, Kashmiri red chill powder, turmeric powder and salt.
Fry for 1to 2min. 
Now add the pureed tomato and tomato paste.
Saute for 3 to 4 minutes.
Now add the chicken.
Cook for 10mins.
The chicken will let out more water, so stir the chicken, cover and cook for another few mins.
Check if the chicken is tender.
If the gravy is too thick add some hot water. 
Now add kasuri methi leaves and cook for 1min. 
When done add garam masala and cashew paste. 
Stir and cook for only a min. 
Don't boil. 
Adjust salt.
Remove from fire and serve with plain hot rice
