Sheetal Kamat

This is one of my favourite in the restaurants, Standard recipy, less spicy and yet delicious.. I had tried this a month back and it turned out amazing, but had not been keeping enough enegry to take up pics and post recipies, so when yesterday when I prepared this, I thought of posting this here.

Butter Chicken
300gm Boneless Chicken
2 Tomatoes
1 Onion
1.5 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
2 Spoon Corriander Powder
1 Spoon Kasuri Methi
1 Spoon Jeera
1/2 Spoon Garlic Paste
1/2 Spoon Ginger Paste
A pinch of Orange Red Color
1/2 Spoon Sugar
1/4 Spoon Tomato Ketchup
1 Cup Cream
4 Spoon Butter
Salt to taste

  • Cut the chicken into rectangular pieces
  • Marinate them with salt, 1 spoon red chilli powder, 1 spoon corriander powder, 1/4 spoon garlic paste and 1/4 spoon ginger paste
  • Heat oil and fry the chicken pieces for 4-5 minutes. Keep them aside
  • In same oil, add jeera and let it splutter.
  • Add chopped onion, kasuri methi and remaining garlic paste, ginger paste, red chilli powder, corriander powder to this.
  • Add water and let it boil.
  • Add the finely chopped tomatoes and cook till tomatoes are completely done
  • Grind this to paste in the mixer and keep aside
  • In a pan, heat butter and add this paste and salt to it
  • Mix 1/2 cup of water and orange color and add it to the gravy.
  • Add sugar, ketchup and fried chicken pieces and bring to boil
  • Switch the flame to low and add cream and cook for 4-5 minutes

While adding the cream dont forget to switch the flame to low as otherwise it wont mix properly
