Butter Chicken

Made a recipe I found on youtube yesterday by The Bombay Chef. The video has over 11 million hits and generally people love it, however having written it down and started to cook it I realised it had hardly any spice in it (half teaspoon garam masala) and lots and lots of sugar (4 tablespoons) and chilli powder (3 tablespoons). I reduced chilli powder to about 2 teaspoons and 4 teaspoons of sugar but it was still very sweet. I cannot help thinking there is a mistake in the recipe????

Could anyone suggest a good butter chicken recipe I can access online

Thanks

Mike

Thanks, Craig.

Mike. Give this recipe a try. You won't be disappointed. As soon as the weather cools a bit, this will be on our table again.

My fave dish is butter chicken, I dry roast all my ingredients then grind yo make my own Garam masala. I use about 2 teaspoons in my curry. No sugar in mine either. I've been trying to get it as I like it over the years. I'm nearly there and will post when it's perfected. I also use real chillies and not powder. I also use cream and Campbell's tomato soup mix as well. This tip,was given to me at an Indian restaurant. Hope you find one you like.

I note the recipe above requires Chicken Masala for the initial marinade then Tandoori Masala in the main recipe. I have found a recipe for home made Chicken Masala online but having difficulty finding a recipe for Tandoori Masala. Perhaps someone could post one?. I live 50 mile round trip from nearest Asian store so easier to make my own providing I have ingredients to hand.

Thanks

Mike

This is my favorite one https://www.cookingandme.com/2015/12...recipe-indian/

Yes portions are small but I prefer the flavour in this one to any one else.

Mike, I use normal Garam masala mix but I add red powder to give the red colouring. Comes in a wee square tin about $4

I tried a recipe with 2 chicken breasts in the slow cooker the other day. You put the chicken breasts in (boneless, skinless), then take an envelope of Ranch dressing mix and sprinkle that over the top, then drop in a stick of sliced butter.

Turn the crock pot on low and leave it cook for about 7 hours or so.

I think next time I might try making the chicken with an envelope of Zesty Italian and butter or if I do Ranch again, I'll try to spice it up a little more.

Mike fwiw, I use my Garam masala spice mixed with red dye and yoghurt with garlic and ginger. Then grill to produce the red black tinge of tandoori, then I let it cool and make the sauce, when it's ready I add the chicken. Where abouts are you?
