Well finally got around to making some butter chicken using the tikka paste I made the other day. I had quite a few stuffups though so not as good as it could've been. How many mistakes can one make with quanities of ingredients :-))

I really need to make this properly one day and it also doesn't help with the weight loss challenge.

Thanks Judy - that's what I ended up doing with the rest anyway.

I made this last night and it was to die for!! We had guests and everybody had second helpings! Absolutely delicious! I doubled the chicken to I think it was just under 800 g and there was still plenty of sauce left over.

I used 1kg chicken thighs this time, & marinated it in double tikka paste (200g) and yes, like Yvette there was still plenty of sauce. I also added some steamed  broccoli & cauliflower which was nice. I think using the thigh fillets was much nicer than the breasts. I love this recipe!

Glad it was nice Bubbles I always use thighs with any chicken recipe (like butter chicken) as they don't dry out and are nice and tasty and I usually always use 1 kilo

Hi Dumb question coming up. Yvette and Bubbles say they use 1 kg of chicken.  I have done this one before and love it but tonight I am cooking for friends so I want to use more chicken 1 kg would be ideal..

If you double the chicken, do you double all the other ingredients?  Ouch that sounds so dumb as I type it!!!  I am hoping some of you who are online will be able to answer this as I am going to get cooking soon.

You have probably already made it but you just increase the chicken not the other ingredients

Thanks Meagan, sorry I wasn't online to help Greyhoundmum, with any recipe if I use I kilo of chicken I don't double the other ingredients just the chicken, but don't use anymore than 1 kilo or it will be too much for the TM

Hi Yvette. I took a punt and left the other ingredients the same. I did add some steamed potatoes at the end as I like the taste of potatoes in my curries and they go much further.  My friends who came last night loved it and they are Indian so must of been ok.😄

That's great Greyhoundmum, you should try (if you haven't already) the fast chicken curry in the EDC book, it has potatoes in it and yummy :)
