Butter Chicken

Recipe for a quick and easy butter chicken
  • Cooking Time(mins): 35
  • Difficulty: Low


  • 500g Boneless Chicken Leg and Thigh Meat
  • 120g Tomatoes
  • 100g Onions
  • 5-7g Ginger and Garlic each
  • 50g Butter
  • 100g Curd
  • 5g Coriander
  • 1 Tbsp Desi Ghee
  • 5g Kasuri Mehti
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 Tsp Red Chilli powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Garam Masala powder
  • 1 Tsp Cumin Powder
  • Salt to Taste


  • Cut the chicken in small but chunky pieces. I prefer leg and thighs for this recipe.
  • Marinate it with salt, turmeric, red chilli, garam masala, cumin powder, dried kasuri methi. Leave it for 15-30 mins.
  • Blend the ginger, garlic, onion and tomato to make a purée.
  • Heat the pan with some ghee. Keep it on highest flame
  • Fry the chicken for 2 mins on highest flame. Flip it over on other side.
  • Generously drop dollops of butter all around. 50gms (4tbsp)
  • Add the puree on top. Mix it with some water in the blender and clean it all.
  • Cover and cook for 10 minutes so that the spices and tomato can be cooked out. Remember to taste it once after first 5 mins and mix it well and cover again.
  • Turn off the gas. Add some cream. Garnish with fresh coriander. All done! 😃
  • I'd served this with some iD whole wheat lacha parantha - Was epic 😻
