  • Hi there Immctagg, The reason

    Submitted by kerry691 on 27. August 2016 - 12:32.

    Hi there Immctagg,

    The reason that the spice mix is listed first is that I combine these in a small bowl when prepping the ingredients and it also shortens the ingredients list.  I didn't stop to think that this would be a source of frustration.... I think I will add an extra preparation step at the beginning to reflect this, so people dont forget any of these in the final mix.  Glad you are enjoying the recipe otherwise!

    I love the recipe. I've adapted it slightly see below - and I reduce the amount of chicken and add some sweet potato

  • Outstanding. Crowd

    Submitted by immctagg on 16. May 2016 - 12:51.

    Outstanding. Crowd favourite.  Butter chicken at its best.  Minimum of 600 gms of chicken, as the amount of sauce that is made needs to be used on the meat.  Can always have it as part of the left overs for lunch.  Probably best to use about 800 gms of meat for the amount of sauce (based on several successful attempts).

    Definitely a great butter chicken recipe.  Would recommend it to anyone.  Will be putting this on the winter recipe list.

    Having cooked it a number of times, it is getting frustrating not having the ingredients listed in the order in which they are added to the bowl.  While it is handy to have the Spice Mix at the top of the recipe, ideally they should be listed under the vegetable stock.  I have made notes on my printed version of the recipe to avoid missing the addition of these important ingredients.

  • The BEST Butter chicken

    Submitted by Rob on 13. January 2015 - 22:18.

    The BEST Butter chicken recipe I have tried and the simplest to make.  I used my own Garam Marsala which I think is the real secret.
