I do this recipe x3 when I make it (generally one flat of chicken). To that quantity, it's 5 stars IF: You add another whole stick of margarine, 3 chopped garlic cloves, plus salt & black pepper to taste. I only used 1 pint (=2 cups) of half & half w/o any yogurt; and the chicken is cooked in 2 batches with about a teaspoon of garam masala in each batch. AMAZING results!
This was less rich and intense than I was expecting. The ingredient list calls for tomato purée not sauce, but the recipe says sauce. Maybe sauce would help. I also think the rice matters and I made mine too watery, so that could be part of the problem.
All I can say is OMG!!!! This stuff is the bomb! My husband adores Indian food, so I made this for his BD - he thought he had died and gone to heaven - for a fraction of the cost!! I made some sauteed swiss chard w/onions & garlic to go with and found some Naan bread in the freezer section of the store that cooks up in less than 5 mins. Oh yeah!!
Excellent! I used 1/4 c tomato paste (just because I had some to use up) and used milk rather than half-and-half to cut down on some of the fat and it was just great. Very nice flavors and the aroma--such a tease!
First time out it was ok. We went off the rails a bit as we didn't get "tomato Puree" figured it must have been tomato paste. Wrong! that made it way to strong a tomato flavour. Some mik added to the dish seemed to help reduce the taste.
It was fast to make. Easy to prepare and our family gave it a thumbs up!
We will work on the tomato puree thing. Any help here is welcome.
Thanks for posting.
Very good. I could not find 'ginger garlic paste' so I made my own using a 50/50 ratio; do not know if that is correct but it seemed to work good for us. The butter chicken was simple to make and flavorful.
Great dish to make for a large group (I tripled the recipe for a party of 12). Served over some rice and everyone really enjoyed it. Some asked for the recipe! This was the first "Indian" dish I've made and it turned out great. I did go to an Indian grocery store for the garam masala and ginger garlic paste.
