Butter chicken with Fenugreek
« on: February 10, 2012, 11:16:21 am »
Name of Recipe:Butter chicken
Number of People:4-6

Ingredients:
1kg chicken breast or thighs cut into largish chunks
100g Natural yoghurt
4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 x 400g can chickpeas drained and rinsed
400ml tomato juice
30g honey
1 tsp salt
1 rounded tsp ground fenugreek
125g butter
250ml cream

Preparation:drop garlic onto running blades.  Add chickpeas, garam masala, and yoghurt , blend speed 8 for 5 seconds, scrape down and blend another 2 seconds.

Pour marinade onto chicken and mix well - leave overnight.

Place chicken mixture into TM and cook temp 100 MC off spoon speed , reverse,  8 mins.

Add all other ingredients (it will make the TM pretty full but it will be ok) give it a quick mix with the spatula.

cook for 10 mins varoma temp sp spoon reverse - MC off .

Cook for a further 20 mins temp 100 speed spoon - reverse.

Add more salt to taste if preferred.

Serve with rice, pappadams and naan.

If you can cook this and leave in fridge overnight the flavours will deepen and give a fantastic flavour!  Don't skip the fenugreek as it is a main component.
It's quite liquidy but I like it - more sauce to mop up with the naan.
