On 24th April 2016, This was Dinner…
Oh my! I put this on the shopping list for the month a few weeks ago but in the meantime I happen to watch Vivek Singh make a more authentic one on the last Saturday Kitchen episode involving James Martin. I thought ‘Wow! I;m on to a winner with butter chicken I think’ and I was right.
- Cut some chicken breasts into chunks
- Finely slice an onion
- Crush a few garlic cloves
- Finely grate some ginger
- Chop some coriander
- Get passata, garam masala, cashew nut butter, double cream, butter & seasoning ready
Throw it together…
Heat some butter in a large pan and cook the onion until softened.
Add the chicken and cook until starting to brown.
Add the garlic and ginger along with some garam masala and stir for a minute. Pour in the passata and gently bring to the boil. Reduce and lave to simmer for about 20 minutes.
Stir in the cashew nut butter and some of the cream and season to taste.
Dish it up…
With some wilted spinach and steamed rice. Sprinkle with coriander (which isn’t shown here).
