Indian Butter Chicken is a dish made with a creamy spiced tomato sauce. The authentic Indian flavors you get from the coriander spices, cardamom, and other blended seasonings will definitely make this a family favorite.
This is one of those recipes where you can turn on some music and get your "cook on"! The aroma of the sauce will fill your home and you'll truly enjoy the process. If you love Indian inspired dishes this recipe will take you there.
When Making Indian Butter Chicken:
Once the chicken is seasoned and well-coated with all ingredients, you will need to refrigerate for at least an hour. This helps to seal in the flavors even more. The longer the better, but it will come out great regardless.
When making the creamy spiced tomato sauce, be sure to monitor your temperature. You do not want to burn the butter and other ingredients.
Adding the tomato paste and whipping cream is my favorite part. I love seeing the sauce transition into a vibrant orange color.
If you want to add some culture to the dinner table for family and friends you will be surprised at the reception you get from the impressions this butter chicken idea will do. Preparation takes a little patience, but I can guarantee it will be worth it!
