If you want restaurant style Butter chicken at your home then no need to worry, Here is the detailed recipe needed to prepare that yummy butter chicken at home. It's a famous chicken recipe in Indian. I love it much because the curry sauce is mildly spiced & you can easily cook in less time. It is served in India and abroad. The dish has its roots in Punjabi cuisine and was developed by the Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi. You can combine butter chicken with tawa roti,naan,rice & some salads which ever you want. So let's start....
Wash the chicken pieces in running water. In a bowl add chicken pieces, turmeric powder,red chili powder, salt, if you want then add 1/4 tsp of ginger, garlic paste, mix it well.
Heat oil in a pan add the chicken pieces, stir it well when water is absorbed & chicken becomes dry then remove the chicken pieces & keep aside.
In the same pan add the ginger, garlic, red chilli, stir it for 2-3 minutes, than add the roughly chopped onion & cashew. When the onion becomes transparent then switch off the flame & blend it a smooth paste, when its becomes cool.
In the same pan add butter & blended onion, cashew paste, fry it well. Then add tomato puree, kasuri methi, half of coriander powder, salt,turmeric powder,coriander powder,mix it well.
Add water & boil, open the lead, add chicken pieces, cook it for 15 minutes, when chicken becomes soft than add the cream & garam masala, cook it for another 2 minutes.
After 2 minutes, switch off the flame, garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Serve hot butter chicken with rice, roti or naan.
