Recipe Review - Butter Chicken (Indian Cookbook)

Butter Chicken
Indian Cookbook
This is a really delicious recipe and so easy to make, the only thing i changed the second time i made it was the amount of salt, i put in half a teaspoon as i found a full teaspoon was a bit much but whatever works for you!

It is really mild and a big hit in our family, one of the few meals that keeps my 3 yr old quiet for longer than 5 minutes :)

We had this for dinner tonight (from the Indian book) and really loved it. Lots of juice to sop up with the naan bread. Definitely to be made again and again.

Made this once (from EDC) and was unimpressed, bit bland.  Tried it again tonight, but bought some pre cooked tandoor chicken thighs (from local deli) and used that instead of the chicken breast - Perfect!

I agree Em. I much prefer the recipe in the Indian cookbook to the EDC one.

I made the butter chicken from the Indian book today.  Have to agree, very nice.  Next time I will deseed one of the chillies, even though it wasn't overly hot, I'd like to try it with one seeded and one not.

The only alterations I made was to add only 1/2 tsp of sea salt and after adding the cream and tomato paste I combined for about 30 seconds before adding the chicken to distribute through.

Lots of sauce just as we like, but next time will definitely add more chicken.  Could quite easily double the amount.
