    If your onion slices are too thick you can try cutting them thinner. Works every time.

    The blue stain is probably from the red onion juice combining with residual soap on your cutting board from the last time you washed it! Veggies like red onion and red cabbage contain a pigment that acts as a natural pH indicator that turns pink when exposed to acid and blue when exposed to a base!

    Butter chicken with roti or tandoori (flatbreads) makes the whole thing so much tastier. Saying this as an Indian, you did a pretty solid job on the butter chicken, it looked really good, but you probably should have added a touch of some chili spice (kashmiri or korean for looks, mild for tastes), but it might have been in the garam masala. Beautiful dish otherwise, and marinate it for 12 hours at least. I know you did this for the essence of time but if you don’t wanna make our brothers and sisters and me cry, you should totally do that lol

    Don't worry about the authenticity .
    Even in India ypu can find a bunch of ways to make butter chicken. So your way of making it is just as right as any other method.
    What matters is how it tastes.

    Just a pinch of garam masala works well with marination. 1:3 onion tomatoes ratio is perfect for curry. Cut tomatoes and onion into chunks and sauté them after frying one green chilli, 6-7 garlic one inch ginger and cumin seeds. Season it with kashmiri red chilli powder, and salt. Add 4-5 cashews for rich velvety curry. Cook until you don’t see butter getting separated and tomatoes are soft. Blend it to fine pury and strain the purée for velvety curry. Add water while blending if required. Fry the sauce for 7-8 mins after frying cumin seeds, one tbsp green chilli paste and one tbsp ginger garlic paste and pinch of kashmiri red chilli powder and salt per taste. Add water as requirement for smooth curry. Add chicken and cook for 3 mins. Turn off the flane and at the end add cream, pinch of garam masala, kasuri methi or fresh parsley. And serve. This is traditional indian recipe for butter chicken.

      Maximum 1 and half hour. Depends on your speed. 30 mins to make the first puree. 20 mins to cook and 10 to prepare ingredients. 15 mins to cook the sauce and extra 10-15 to cook chicken in the sauce. Finished.

      @ThatWinTanjeen believe it or not you don't need butter in butter chicken.
      The name butter comes from the term makkhan. It's the consistency of the gravy that is the reason behind the name and not the actual ingredient.
      You could thicken the gravy by adding cream or cashew paste, getting the makkhani gravy.

    i tried this! very wierd to learn an indian dish as an Indian from a non Indian but the simplicity of your recipes is very motivating. It turned out very nice although i had to add sugar to make it have more flavour (maybe that's the non fresh tomatoes secret ingredient). I think I'll add more varied indian spices next time though because it didn't taste like the indian version: makhni handi. But overall quick and easy well tasting dish for lovers of cream.

    Dude. You did a very good job. That’s pretty much how my mom taught me to make it. Some things i think might be “lost in translation” of mainly spices. More spice. We make our own garam masala. It differs from household to household though so, yours actually isn’t at all wrong. Aromatics and accoutrements are on the money. Dont let anyone tell you differently. Im a chef too and went to Louisiana culinary institute and my instructors love it and lamb briyana so passionately. Your channel is a highlight. Thanks for the inspiration.

      @CJ Lopez Yup you can use any curry powder. Tbh indians themselves dont know which spices should be added. Different people add different spices. Turmeric powder, cumin powder, chillie powder are basic spices. You can add more if you find. Does not matter. You can even try with salt and pepper

    • Anindita Mallik
      Anindita Mallik 7 months ago +4

      I don't know what's there in curry powder....but if you aromatics like cumin, fennel, coriander seeds, cinnamon, cardamom, bay leaf dried etc you can toast it and grind to make your own garam masala. Well ingredients and consistency may differ according to your wish

  • Linden Shepherd

    Not sure if you'll see this, but I've worked in the restaurant industry for couple of years and the most useful tip I have for fine slicing is to not move your knife. Don't let your knife wander leftwards (if you're righthanded), just keep slicing the onion/garlic in the same place. Also, not giving your knife a lot of room to cut, as in keeping your fingers somewhat close to the end of the things your cutting. Not having a lot of room tricks your brain into making thinner slices to avoid approaching your fingers.

  • Dima Gurevich
    Dima Gurevich 2 months ago +2

    Here's my first experience doing this
    1. I prepared it with 1kg chicken breast cut to somewhat large chunks. Adjusting for your marinade, I put way too much yogurt. It ended up releasing too much water and I wasn't able to fry the chicken, instead it was cooked, still with that water in it.
    2. I then sliced 2 onions using a slicer, twice as much garlic and ginger as you did. Added more spices like you did, then the can of tomatoes. I then decided to pour the chicken water into the sauce, to preserve the flavor and evaporate excess water.
    I used some red pepper powder I found lying around instead of cayenne, I didn't have it.
    3. I probably didn't use enough cream but it still came out mostly like it looks in the video
    4. my hand blender is metal and the pan is non-stick so I had to blend it outside the pan, and didn't put it back to simmer with the chicken, instead I just tossed the chicken into the sauce already outside the pan. I didn't get that fried taste, but still very nice.
    Keep in mind, this is the first time I cooked it.

    I made a dairy-free version of this. I used Silk Plain Dairy-Free Yogurt for the yogurt and Silk Dairy-Free Heavy Whipping Cream. For butter I used Earth Balance Vegan Butter. The sauce didn’t end up as thick as yours, and the chicken didn’t coat evenly while cooking. I think the yogurt was the problem. I imagine the yogurt you used was a lot fattier. I’ll have to figure out how to thicken mine. Tasted fucking BOMB though. Making again soon.

    Tip for thin slices: for the hand that’s used to grip the ingredient being cut, form it into a claw where your fingertips secure the ingredient to the board. Bring the knife’s flat side in contact with the knuckles of your clawed fingers. Press the fingers against the blade to create a comfortable tension, then proceed with cutting. In between cuts move your clawed fingers back ever so slightly, ensuring tension with the flat of the knife is maintained. This should give you thin slices. Cheers

    Pretty good.....here are some tweeks which will help you cut down on the cream and hopefully improve the flavor/as well as store for future use.
    1. Use onion, ginger, garlic, tomato, cilantro stems/roots and cashew nuts. 2. This is a tomato based dish. Use very little of every thing else. For the amount you tomato you cooked you could use half an onion, 8-10 cashews, ginger/garlic as per tastes and 2-3 stalks/stems of cilantro.
    2. Use ghee/oil instead of butter to cook all of the above.
    3. When almost done add some water, bring to a boil, cool and blend till smooth. Then use a sieve to get out all the fat bits and tomato peels.
    4. Your gravy paste now needs to be cooked thoroughly until excess water evaporates. Once done you can cool and store in the fridge for upto 5 days and use whenever you want to make the butter chicken.
    5. To finish add cream and butter to your liking along with the chicken. You will notice the cashews already make the whole thing very creamy. So use as little as you like.
    6. Traditionally this is finished with kasoori methi/dried Fenugreek leaves. I personally also gently saute 1 green chilli in butter and add to the dish. It makes the whole thing smokier.

    You should buy fenugreek leaves seasoning it's available in Albert heijn in the Netherlands. And season the butter chicken at the end. It's a game changer. That's how authentic Indian restaurants do it too

    u can also add lemon zest , lemon juice ,a little bit if turmeric and oil which gives the dish a unique flavor. u can also try rosting the onions first and then add the chicken. this is a small tip

    A favorite tip: make the rice wet but not as wet as porridge (i think thats what its called in english- ) if it’s dry as at least 1 cup of water and wait for it to soak up all the water

    This is just as good as an original butter chicken, as well as practical and easy to make. This is true everyday food for anyone.
    Thanks for this! I´m making it tomorrow for sure!

  • Aditya Shekhar Camarushy

    Looks fantastic!! A great take on the classic butter chicken!! I'd say add some cashew nuts to the gravy before blending them in, it provides an even creamier texture and tastes great !!

    Personally I'm a big fan of adding some turmeric to that spice mix and using cream of coconut rather than normal cream. If you really like coconut toasted coconut on top adds a ton of flavor and makes the dish even better!

    I am Indian and whenever my mum cooks she literally never uses any kind of recipe, still the food comes out amazing. (Which is like the story of every Indian household!)
    So what I wanna say here is that Indian food is all about experience and nobody here follows any specific proportions, so you do what you like as long as it tastes amazing and the people you serve are satisfied.

    You should try it with the Naan bread it'll taste much better and using cumin gives great flavours. And obviously the traditional version has other ingredients too but this one looks just as good 👍

    Tip for cutting onions:
    After getting the skin off, sit the onion upwards with the root facing down. Make a series of horizontal cuts into the onion, like you're going to take a big slice off, but stop about a half inch short of the bottom.
    Once you've made all your horizontal "slices", do the same thing with vertical cuts.
    At this point you should have a grid pattern in the onion. Turn it on to its side and start cutting complete slices off. The effect should be that you end up with lots of nice diced pieces. You can vary the distance between the cuts depending on how big you want your onion pieces.
    This method also helps avoid the tear juice of the onion, which is stored in the root you will be avoiding.

    One tip when slicing would be to tuck your fingers in more, so the lengths of the middle section of your fingers are parallel with the blade. Also the thumb should remained tucked, as far away from the knife as possible so you don't accidentally slice it. You can still use the thumb to hold what you're cutting.

    First of all with naan or tandori roti and cook it with the bone it'd taste better. Did a good job man but it's a lot different in India. Do come to India and try it you'd love it. And for the best taste of butter chicken you'd have to visit moti mahal, daryaganj in old Delhi. 👍🏾 love your breakfast videos.

      Also papdum is an Additional food had with the main course. Not talking about rice or bread. It just adds taste to the food.

    • Kshitij Sabharwal
      Kshitij Sabharwal 8 months ago +2

      You too should come to India cause the cuisines here are very diverse .papdum is something had with South Indian dishes. This is a mughlai dish and if you’d like the combination then have it any way you want.

  • Santiago Munoz

    If you wanna make it a bit fancy, you can confirm the chicken. It's a French technique where you slowly poach a protein over low heat and a long time. Chicken thighs can fall apart in like 3 hours. Can use a oil or broth. I'd also throw in aromatics to enhance the flavor with the more prominent curry spices. Leave whole. And even brine it before I poach it. It's great for planning a dinner party when you need to get other stuff done. Just give yourself a timer. And you can use coconut cream after frying some garlic, onions ginger and spices. It's like butter but also like cream. Make sure when canned, to remove the cream at the top. If you just dump the can the water will come out too

    Pro tip.: *In a small stainless steel bowl, put some pieces of burning charcoal and put some melted butter over that burning charcoal and place that bowl in the centre of the pan having butter chicken, then immediately cover with an airtight lid and let the charcoal smoke to be settled in that butter chicken, it will give a bit smokey barbeque flavour to the butter chicken. And also try to eat butter chicken with naan or garlic naan, it tastes more better than with just rice.*

    Adding kasuri methi(dried fenugreek leaves) enhances the flavour to another level. Try to add it instead of cilantro
