Butter Chicken with Kachumber Salad

Rated 4.9/5 from 47 Customer Reviews

This dish is a more sophisticated version of the ever popular Chicken Tikka Masala, which was invented as a way of using up leftover Tandoori chicken in Indian restaurants in the UK. Unlike Chicken Tikka, Butter Chicken (or Murgh Makhani) has its origins in Northern India and consists of chicken marinated in spiced yogurt, then cooked in a sauce rich with butter, tomato and spices including methi (fenugreek) leaves. The fenugreek gives a very particular ‘curry’ flavour, with a really sweet, fragrant scent that’s very recognisable. Here we are serving it with a tangy kachumber salad and rice.

Turned out amazing! A little heavy on the onion, which I find is a bit of a pattern with these kits. I tend to need about half the amount of onion that they recommend.

I'm now a complete convert and regularly order. The recipes are so easy, you just need half a dozen ingredients that I usually have anyway and they take about 20 mins to prepare. So easy and tasty. Highly recommend!
