In Today's episode we make delicious, fragrant Indian Butter Chicken, using the Tandoori Chicken we baked yesterday.
Ingredients
  • 1.2kg Cooked Tandoori chicken
  • 100g Butter
  • 160ml Cream
  • 45g Garlic, finely chopped
  • 55g Ginger, finely chopped
  • 5 Green chillies, chopped
  • 1Tsp Paprika
  • 900g Tomatoes
  • 480ml Chicken Stock
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander to garnish
Instructions
  1. Finely chop the garlic, ginger and green chillies. Measure out the paprika, butter, chicken stock and cream. Chop the tomatoes, and cut the entire chicken into bite sized pieces.
  2. Heat the butter in a pan over medium high heat and fry the garlic, ginger and chilli for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add the paprika and stir this until totally combined.
  4. Add the chopped tomato and the chicken stock. Bring this to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer the tomato for 10 to 15 minutes. The tomatoes must be soft and tender.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool for 5 minutes. Using your stick blender, puree the tomatoes until smooth.
  6. Return the pan to the heat, add the chicken and bring this to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the chicken for 10 minutes until it is absolutely tender.
  7. Add the cream, stir this in until totally combined. Season with salt to taste and serve immediately garnished with fresh coriander. As an accompaniment, any Indian bread will serve well.
