How to cook butter chicken

Step one:

In a bowl, combine chicken with all of the ingredients for the chicken marinade except oil/butter; let marinate for 30 minutes to an hour (or overnight if time allows). Grill the chicken in a large skillet with oil/butter. Make sure not to crowd the pan. Cook for three minutes on each side (depends on the size of chicken chunks) or until the chicken is 3/4th cooked.

Step Two:

Heat oil in a pan. Add cardamoms, cinnamon and cloves and sauté for a min. Add ginger garlic paste and chopped green chilies. Sauté for a minute and add the onions. Cook them for about 6 minutes. Now add the red chilli powder, garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder and cook for a minute while scraping up any browned bits stuck on the bottom of the pan.

Add chopped tomatoes. Let simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce thickens and becomes a deep brown red colour.

Remove from the heat and blend the mixture to a really smooth paste.

Now add the butter in the same pan. Cook the puréed sauce in the butter. Add sugar and crushed kasoori methi (or fenugreek leaves) into the sauce. Add the grilled chicken with its juices. Stir and simmer the gravy for another 5 to 8 minutes. Add the cream and mix well. Remove from the stove immediately to avoid curdling of the graving.

Garnish the Butter Chicken with coriander leaves. Serve Chicken Makhani or Butter Chicken with cooked rice or Naan/Kulcha.
