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

    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

    Submitted by ainsleighb on 15. January 2018 - 10:30.

    Made this the other day, substituted the cream for coconut cream (love the taste better)

    However sauce did not combine, and the chicken was raw after the specified cooking time - I followed everything exactly and unsure what I've done wrong as there doesn't seem to be any other reviews outlining this.

    Did this step again
    - Add all other ingredients besides cream and 12 minutes, 100 degrees, speed soft, reverse
    [/b]And found that the chicken was cooked this time, and sauce combined.

    I then shredded the chicken (7 seconds/Reverse/speed 4)

    The flavours are fullsome in this recipe with a nice spice to it. The quantity has lasted about 3 days in our household of two - and that's using for lunch and dinner!

    Additionally stirred through 2 handfuls of baby spinach into the mix before serving.

    Was also great on toasted sandwiches with cheese. Big Smile

    I will use this recipe later when I attempt a 'butter chicken pie'

    Submitted by Polly__Page on 9. November 2017 - 11:52.

    Amazing! This was so delicious. I’ve tried a couple of different butter chicken recipes but this was by far the best, the whole family loved it and asked for it again. Great flavours, (I did omit the chilli for one fussy child but added some Baba Meat Curry powder to the spice mix), so quick and easy. It did make a lot of sauce, so I will add some more chicken next time or use the leftover sauce on something else - we had it over sausages with mash and veg the next night. Edit: also used lactose free cream for dietary requirement and it worked fine.

    Submitted by SheznSez on 4. November 2017 - 12:19.

    My family & I love this recipe! I make it in the morning & let it sit in the fridge for the rest of the day, to allow the flavours develop. I make up the spice mix in advance & put it in a zip lock bag, I make a few bags, so when you need it, it's right there. If you have small children or someone who doesnt like chilli, I'd definitely ease up on the chilli.

    WOW! First ever dinner cooked in my Thermomix and it was brilliant thank you! That flavour ... yummo. I had no smoked paprika, left chilli out for the kids, used only 15g apple cider vinegar as it's all I had & completely forgot the honey but it was delicious. Will be a definite regular in our house now. 9yo loved it - big win, 8yo not so but one hint of spice & she's not happy. She can have toast Big Smile For my TM31 I used 700g chicken & just filled to the max line with coconut cream. THANK YOU Smile

    Smile This was the first recipe I made with my new Thermi. Everyone loved it. I've added all the spices together into a jar, labelled 'Easiest Best Butter Chicken Spice Mix', so next time it will be even easier. I could make it a little spicier with extra chilli. I used about 900 grams of chicken thigh fillets and it feed 6 easily with healthy seconds for the growing teenage boys. Thanks jacqui248

    Submitted by heidi_hi on 31. August 2017 - 11:07.

    Nice..... we love butter chicken and I enjoy trying different recipes.

    I read the comments about the sauce being a bit runny so I blitzed some almonds and cashews and added those at the end. I also added a slurp of honey as I felt it needed a bit of something.....

    It did make a lot which was great however next time I'll try to cook with the butterfly as my chicken shredded.

    I'll be book marking this recipe to try again - although I think the authentic butter chicken recipe on here may even be slightly easier!
