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.
Best Butter Chicken / Best Service
Family loved this butter chicken, easy to make and better then a restaurant. Also had to contact the company due to small hiccup with kit – they answered the phone at 6.30pm Sat (expected to leave a msg) instead of posting a new kit they decided to deliver directly to my home on Sunday- I’ve never had such amazing service – Thank You
Response from Spicecraft
Hi Joanne. Thank you for leaving a review. So glad we were able to fix the issue with the sachet for you in time for the family meal. Always happy to be of service.
This was one of the best I have ever eaten and better than some I have had in restaurants. Really enjoyed making this and was a huge hit with the family.
Response from Spicecraft
Thanks Martine. So glad you and your family enjoyed it.
BEWARE!! Once you have executed and sampled this simple to follow recipe you will be hard pressed to find a Butter Chicken in a restaurant that is as good as this. Simply the best butter chicken I have tasted in a long time!
Delicious as Vegetarian Meal too!
As a vegetarian, I was slightly wary but after some great instructions from Ambika and Vikram, adapted it to a vego version. Have made it several times now and we just love it. Easy to follow instructions mean that the kit is now a staple in our household.
Better than Store Bought!
My cousin sent me a pack to try and now I’m hooked. I even gifted a pack to all my family for Christmas. Best Butter Chicken EVER!
