THE BUTTER CHICKEN STORY
Butter Chicken was first invented over 70 years ago in an Old Delhi restaurant called Moti Mahal famous for it’s Tandoori Chicken (whole chicken marinated with spices and grilled in a very hot clay oven). The chef came up with a creamy spiced tomato sauce, popped some pieces of Tandoori Chicken into it and called it Butter Chicken. The rest as they say is history.
After sampling a lot of Butter Chicken at Moti Mahal and discreet chats with their chefs, we worked out a recipe that captures the flavoursome essence of the original dish while keeping it simple to make.
All you need to do is follow the easy colour coded steps. It does take a bit of time as you’re cooking everything from scratch but the results are so worth the effort.
BUTTER CHICKEN SPICES
The kit comes with 13 herbs and spices pre-mixed into 4 separate sachets. As different spices cook differently, each mix goes in at different stages so you build layers of lip smacking flavour as you cook.
We use only the finest spices from around the world. Whole spices are roasted, ground, blended and packed right here in Sydney to ensure maximum quality and freshness.
No artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. Everything in the kit is gluten and nut free.
shopping list for fresh ingredients
All the Butter Chicken spices you need are pre-portioned for the recipe in the kit.
You need to get a few simple fresh ingredients listed in the recipe card – chicken, cream, tomato paste etc. Follow the easy step by step instructions to cook sensational Butter Chicken the way it is meant to be.
Serve with some hot naan bread or steamed Basmati rice.
If you’re not cooking for 6, this Butter Chicken freezes really well for up to 3 months so you can get multiple meals out of it. In fact it tastes even better the next time. Great for meal prepping.
For a milder flavour, cook the Butter Chicken as per the recipe, then add in a few dollops of cream just before serving. This way you can adjust the heat to individual preferences.
Flavour and consistency
If the sauce looks a bit runny, cook uncovered for 5-10 mins until it thickens.
It is really important to use light thickened cream as the fat in full cream will dull the flavour.
I keep coming back!
I’m now a regular customer and in fact the product is now in high demand with my work colleagues! They take it from me as fast as I can buy it! A fantastically tasty and authentic product with high quality ingredients. Love it.
Best butter chicken at home
The best butter chicken from our local restaurant is getting close to $30 for a small takeaway container which doesn’t feed my family of four. I’ve tried spice blends from mainstream brands and supposedly authentic ones from Asian grocery stores – none of them replicated the local restaurant enough to be worthwhile – until Spicecraft! So glad I tried this one – it’s the business. My family loved it and I can deliver quality taste in bulk for a fraction of the price of takeaway. I’m giving these as gifts for Xmas to friends and family.
We have been all around the world (although, not India) and have found our local Indian restaurant to still be our number one. Strangely number two was in Rome of all places.
However, these Spice Craft kits are right up there with our two favourites and way better than the rest, which was a very pleasant surprise indeed.
Absolute best ever
This butter chicken is nothing like I’ve had from a take-aways (except maybe in London!). So much flavour, so well balanced. Definitely good value for money, and great to have on hand.
We were introduced to Spice Craft at this year’s Easter show and once we tasted it there was no way we weren’t getting some! After finishing the first lot I’ve just ordered another 8 boxes! The recipe is perfect and adaptable to different spice levels. We tried both the big kit and the small ones and like both with the option of having the full kit for bigger family dinners and the small box for when we just want to make something for work lunches. Hands down 5 stars. Better than any of the butter chickens I’ve tasted at restaurants.
