Recipe – “Butter Chicken”

A modification of my mum’s recipe and the one on Luke Hines’ blog.

Ingredients:
900g diced chicken thigh
1 onion, diced
5 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp ghee
400g can crushed tomatoes
270g can coconut cream
chopped capsicum, green beans, broccoli

Spices:
1 tsp garam masala
2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground chilli powder
salt & pepper

Garnish:
chopped fresh coriander

Method:
1. Mix spices up and coat chicken.
2. Melt ghee, add onions & garlic, fry up.
3. Add chicken (may be worthwhile doing in batches if using that much chicken), cook.
4. Add tomatoes, stir.
5. Add veges & coconut cream and simmer until it’s all soft and tasty – season to taste.

Serve with whatever carb source you want (did rice for my partner, nothing for me) and garnish with coriander.
