The Butter Chicken story

Butter Chicken was first invented over 70 years ago in an Old Delhi restaurant called Moti Mahal. The restaurant was famous for it's Tandoori Chicken - whole chicken marinated with spices and grilled in a very hot clay oven.

When certain cuts of the whole chicken didn't move fast enough, the chefs came up with a creamy spiced tomato sauce. They popped pieces of Tandoori Chicken into the sauce and called the dish 'Butter Chicken'. The rest as they say is history.

At Spicecraft we followed Butter Chicken right to it's source.

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.

Inside the Spice Kit: Butter Chicken Spices

The kit comes with 13 herbs and spices pre-mixed into 4 separate sachets. As different spices cook differently, each sachet goes in at different stages so you build layers of complex flavour as you cook.

We use only the finest spices from around the world. The 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.

Vegan or vegetarian? Check out this recipe for a delicious version with roasted cauliflower and Paneer.

Inside the Spice Kit: Butter Chicken Recipe and Shopping List

In addition to the spice mixes in the kit, you will need some fresh ingredients like chicken/veg, tomato paste and honey.

Once you've gathered all the ingredients, just follow the easy colour coded steps according to the included recipe. It does take a bit of time as you're cooking everything from scratch but the results are so worth the effort.

Serve with some buttery naan bread or steamed Basmati rice.

Cooking Tips

Freezing

Not cooking for 6? This Butter Chicken is great for freezing. The cooked Butter Chicken will keep for upto 3 months in the freezer or 2 days in the fridge. In fact leftovers taste even better the next day as the flavours get a chance to develop.

Making it milder

Prefer it milder? Cook the Butter Chicken as per the original recipe, then add in a few dollops of cream or plain yogurt just before serving. This lets you adjust the heat level to individual tastes. Do not use yogurt if you wish to reheat it later.

Flavour and consistency

If the sauce looks a bit runny, cook uncovered for another 10-15 mins after adding the cooked chicken. You want thick a saucy consistency. For best results, use light thickened cream; the fat in full cream will dull the flavour of spices.

Tried many different ways to make a butter chicken curry at home and by far this one was the best. Easy to follow and everything was included, it was like going to a restaurant. Will definitely make again!

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
