Dinner Sunday 3rd March

Tonight for dinner we are cooking Jimmy's Butter Chicken

Jimmy was a contestant on Masterchef Australia Season 2 and he apparently made the best Butter Chicken when he was there...he is Indian which helped

It has become quite famous and heaps of people love it...so tonight we are going to attempt it ourselves

I had to go to an Indian supermarket to get some of the ingredients as you cant get them in the normal supermarkets

Really looking forward to it...about to start cooking now

I love butter chicken and yours looks just the way I like it.....

I am going to slow roast a slab of pork belly for dinner. I have it marinating in a mixture of roasted peppercorns and fennel seeds, garlic, thyme and olive oil. I think it is going to take about 2 1/2 hours. Then crisp up the skin. Going to serve it with garlic gai lan and some kind of potato....

The looks like the butter chicken you posted last time, Kylie. Are the recipes very similar? It looks delicious, but I hate buying dish specific ingredients I'll probably only use once a year.

The Sharwood's butter chicken sauce is good. I am like you. I like to make a few dishes and this just makes things a bit easier.

that looks great, kylie!

we were supposed to go skiing today but found out the mountain was having both "scout day" as well as end of the season races, so it would have been a madhouse. we canned the idea until tuesday (gonna let my boy play hookey from school... shhhhhh!).

so today is batting cages, baseball practice, then out for korean bbq for dinner.

Thanks for the recommendation.
So butter sauce is basically a curry?

Pac--you can make your own butter sauce if you have gram masala on hand (or you can blend your own gram masala). Some recipes use heavy cream, others use 1/2 and 1/2 plus plain yogurt and tomato paste/sauce. There are a lot of variations of recipes on the Internet.
