Ginger Garlic paste- 1tblspn

Marinate the cut chicken pieces in corn starch,1 tsp chilli powder and some salt.

In a Kadai add oil and put in the chicken pieces and just sear the chicken pieces till it is no longer pink.Remove it and set aside.

Now melt some butter in the same kadai and add chilli and ginger garlic paste.

Pour in the tomato puree and mix well,Put in the chilli powder and cook untill oil separates from it.

Add salt and sugar to taste,Add in the chicken pieces with some water and cover and cook till the chicken is completely done.

Now Just crush in the Kasuri methi leaves in and mix.

Add in the fresh cream and mix well and switch off the flame.

Add in the rest of the Butter and Garnish with Coriander leaves.


1)Adding Fresh cream cut down the sourness of the Tomatoes and brings a silkyness to this dish,if you cant find Fresh cream you can use Some Thick milk.

  15. Hi Aarthi, I just tried your butter chicken recipe!! My kids loved it. Thanks for postings receives. Always I go to your site when I need anything to try....

  16. Hi aarthi sis...this is really awesome...gonna try.....I regularly watch ur updates....keep posting

  17. First things first. I was recently introduced to your site. I tried a coconut recipie with chicken and i really loved it. Today I want to try butter chicken. I was hoping u could clarify my doubt.I usually get broiler chicken but it takes lot of time to cook. So I cook the chicken in cooker and follow the remainder procedure in your blog. But in the butter chicken recepie you ask to marinate the chicken. So can I marinate after boiling the chicken like I do regularly?


You are really kind hearted, who came to leave comments for me. Each of your comments are really valuable for me. This keeps me cooking a lot..Thank you so much..

Please think twice before leaving Harsh & Rude comments. It hurts me a lot. All those comments will be deleted.

Thanks for understanding..
