Better Butter Chicken

 

A mild, tangy curry to introduce your kids to Indian cuisine. I’ve made a few ingredients swaps for a healthier version with a dash of veggies. Use left-overs to make a butter chicken pie.

 

500g boneless chicken thighs

1 ½ cups of yoghurt

3 tbs coriander leaves, finely chopped

1 tsp fresh ginger, minced

1 tbs garam masala

1 tsp ground cardamom

2 garlic cloves, minced

 

½ brown onion, finely diced

2 carrots, diced

1 large potato, diced

1 tbs coconut oil

4 tbs tomato paste

300 ml chicken stock

½ cup light cream

1 cucumber, diced

½ red onion, diced

Brown basmati rice to serve

 

  1. Chop the chicken into bite size pieces. Marinate the chicken pieces in the yoghurt, garlic, ginger, 2 tbs of coriander and dried spices. Try to marinate overnight or at least an hour or so.
  2. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add the carrot and potato. Cook for around 8-10 minutes until tender – but not overcooked. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a frying pan, heat up the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Cook the onion until soft.
  4. Turn the heat up high, then add the chicken pieces to the hot frying pan and cook until browned. Reserve as much yoghurt marinade as you can – this will be added later.
  5. Once the chicken is browned, add the carrot and potato, then the rest of the yoghurt marinade, chicken stock and tomato paste. Stir to combine and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. When ready to serve, stir in the cream until warm. Serve with a side dish of diced cucumber and red onion. Top the butter chicken with coriander leaves and serve on rice.

These yoghurty, herby spiced lamb chops will work with whatever herbs you have on hand and are exactly the kind of food you'll want to be eating as we head into the warmer months. Not that you'll have any leftovers, but if you do, they're a great addition to a leafy salad for lunch the next day, particularly when we're WFH. Grilled on the barby or pan fried, they won't fall short of providing a satisfying dinner for the whole fam.

Musakhan is a traditional Palestinian chicken meal that's served from one dish, for everyone to tear of bread and sandwich the tender, spiced chicken and onions in between. With the mild weather we've been blessed with, we cooked the chicken on the barby to give the whole dish a nice, toasty flavour but cooking it in the oven will works wonderfully too!
