Tip

For rice I add water to 1 litre line in bowl, weigh rice into simmering basket any amount upto 400 grams.

Rinse Rice under water, add basket to bowl

17 minutes, 100 degrees, speed 4, turns out perfect everytime

I have made and tried alot of butter chicken and this is what I have put together myself from all of them, for optimum ease and optimum taste.

Sometimes if i am using CHUNKY tomatoes etc, when it comes to the add everything else but cream, after adding everything else but BFORE adding the chicken i blitz on speed 5 for 5 seconds to make it a nice smooth sauce.

PLEASE rate if MAKE

for DAIRY free, change butter to oil, and cream to coconut cream

    Omg yum! Definatly the best one i have tried so far. Tastes just ike the store brought, with that delicious sweet taste.
    I will try less chilli next time as i think thats what made it spicy, however we just put extra cream once it was in our bowls to make it less spicy.
    Into the favourites for sure!
    I served this with the non fried fried rice, delicious!

    Super tasty! Thanks for the recipe

    Popular with everyone, for those who found it spicy, we had extra yoghurt on hand.

    Whislt following this recipe, i also made a portion for my vegan daughter in law - substituted Nuttelex for the butter, and when it got to adding the chicken, simply syphoned some of the sauce into a small saucepan with lighted crisped tofu and continued to simmer this whilst continuing with the bulk in the TM5 as per the recipe.

    To the remainder of the sauce in the TM, we added 1kg of chicken. Even with splitting the sauce - there was plenty left over to use as a quick sauce to add chicken leftover.

    I also added the butterfly utensil when I added the chicken to help stir it round.

    This is the first time making curry with my Thermomix and this recipe did not disappoint! I used slightly less chilli powder and my five year ate it - and she's quite fussy! I had a lot of sauce leftover which I'll freeze and use for a quick veggie curry one night. Thanks for sharing

    Have made this dish many times and every one loves it! I don't find the sauce to watery but there is alot left over so i freeze that sauce for a quick dinner. I just pan fry some chopped chicken and add the sauce once the chicken is cooked through to heat up. Much better than jar sauce!

    The best Butter Chicken recipe I have made to date! Two out of the three kids thought it was a little too spicy so next time I may reduce the chilli powder to 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon. It was superb..... and quick and easy to make. It'll be a staple in our household.

    Followed pretty much to the tee but didn’t have cardamom. Blitzed the sauce ingredients before adding chicken breast (which didn’t dry out!). Lots of sauce as people have commented so will increase chicken next time to freeze a full meal that will be left over. Lovely taste and no complaints so it’s a winner!

    Amazing!!! The entire family of 5 loved it! I took onboard to comments about the sauce being too watery so I added cashews with the onion etc and used only 200mls of cream. The result was a great thick consistency and still PLENTY of sauce and chicken for leftovers. I doubled the amount of vegie stock too tmrc_emoticons.-)

    Submitted by Cherryn on 3. August 2018 - 11:22.

    This was yummy! I used about 900g chicken thigh fillet cut into large chunks, but for some reason the chicken wasn't cooked through after the specified time. Next time maybe I'll try 20 mins @ 100degs total cooking time. But the sauce was tasty. I think this is the only dish that the whole family will eat without complaints.

    My family LOVE it! I adjust the chilli powder to 1/8th teaspoon and it's perfect for us. Also found, as others have, the sauce is a bit watery. I now thicken with cornflour and also do 1kg of chicken. This makes it pretty much perfect!Smile

    Submitted by dmiddl06 on 10. March 2018 - 21:37.

    I made this tonight, I found the flavours very nice. Although, I was a little afraid of it being too spicy so cut back on the paprika. Don't think I needed to worry. I also didn't puree as I used crushed tomatoes, I will do so next time . There was also a lot of sauce compared to meat and it was fairly runny. Might put more meat in next time and maybe less tomatoes. Definitely a must do again .

    Thanks
    Regards
