20110313 Butter Chicken, v2

(SOURCE: Tasty Kitchen - Butter Chicken by lillieknits)

My second attempt at butter chicken. This was creamy and mild like the butter chicken from the Indian take away. We served this with garlic bread, naan, and plain white rice - anything you can use to absorb all the yummy sauce!

1kg boneless chicken, cubed
8 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp tandoori masala spices
2 tsp salt
1 lime, juiced
2 medium onions, diced
1/4 cup butter
400g passata
400g chopped tomatoes
2 tsp dried coriander
450ml whipping cream, at room temperature
chopped coriander, for garnish

1. Combine first 4 ingredients and marinate overnight.
2. Saute the onions in the butter until soft. Add the marinated chicken and cook for 10 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Simmer for 30 minutes with the lid on. Add the whipping cream and coriander just before serving over basmati rice.
