Easy Butter Chicken Masala

Prezi's picture
  Boneless chicken 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Preferably From Chicken Breasts)
  Organic tomatoes 2 Medium, pureed
  White onion 1 Medium, finely sliced
  Garlic 6 Clove (30 gm), crushed
  Ginger 1 Medium, finely chopped and crushed
  Butter cubes 3 (1 Inch Pieces)
  Fresh cream 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Turmeric powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garam masala 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  White sugar 1 Pinch, powdered

Now this is real easy stuff! Heat butter in a pan and sauté onion and crushed garlic in it.

Meanwhile, shred chicken pieces to bite-size and mix in the masala, that is ginger, chili powder, turmeric powder and salt; see to it that the chicken pieces are well coated with the masala.

When the onions turn slightly transparent, put the chicken pieces and cook until golden brown.

Now, when the chicken is cooked, stir in the fresh cream and finally add the pureed/tomato paste. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar, if you like the butter chicken to taste a lil sweet.

Keep the pan closed and cook for another few minutes (about 10 min or so) until you feel the gravy is cooked.

Finally, sprinkle the garam masala, empty to the serving bowl and serve hot with your favorite Indian breads or steamed rice!
