How to Make Butter Chicken

Milk, yogurt and tomatoes combine to create the fragrant, wonderfully spiced classic Indian dish of butter chicken.

A delicious butter chicken is one of life’s greatest pleasures. A mixture of Indian spices, tomatoes, yogurt and butter combine to make a mild yet flavourful curry. We’ve reduced the amount of butter in our version so you don’t need to feel guilty about indulging in this otherwise decadent dish! 

Don’t be intimidated by the ingredients either. It may seem like a lot, but it’s an incredibly easy dish to prepare and they’re all readily available from most grocery stores. Once all the ingredients are combined allow the dish to simmer for at least 30 minutes until the sauce is thickened and the flavours have all mingled.

Serve over a bed of cooked rice and garnish with fresh cilantro. Add a side of naan for an authentic experience.
