Butter Chicken

Hari ini sepulang dari kantor my hubby Jeff pengen banget masak, kebetulan deh secara saya juga lagi bingung mau masak apa. Klontang klenteng di dapur sementara saya sibuk ber-internet ria dan kezia sibuk dengan barney-nya ah nikmatnya..."nyandu" (nyantai dulu) aah !!! huehehe...

Saya gak tau apa menunya, tau2 sudah dipanggil aja tuk dinner karena meja makan sudah rapi lengkap dengan menu "butter chicken"nya. Walah...surprised juga. (tau ajah kalo saya dah lama gak masak butter chicken...kangen ya say ?)

Butter Chicken
source : Cuisin du monde (Modified by : ma hubby)

Ingredients :
2 to 3 tablespoons of butter
1 onion
¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of crushed garlic
2 teaspoons of crushed ginger
½ teaspoon of ground turmeric
1 to 2 teaspoons of chilli powder
1 tablespoon of coriander
400 grams / 14 oz of skinless, boneless chicken thighs or breasts
¼ to ½ cup ground almonds
225 gram / 8 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes with juice
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
½ cup of unsweetened yoghurt
1/2 cup Spreadable Cheddar Cheese (not in the original recipe)

Trim and cut the chicken into small cubes, cover and put aside. Slice the onions into thin wedges (lyonnaise). Heat a large saucepan or frying pan and melt 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter until it is frothy. Add the onions and the cinnamon to the pan and fry lightly. When the onions are soft stir in the crushed garlic and ginger. Then add the turmeric, chilli and coriander, and sauté over a medium heat. The spices are fried first to release their maximum flavour and this really enhances the dish. Add the cubed chicken and sauté stirring constantly until the chicken has turned white. Pour in the ground almonds, tomatoes and tomato paste. Mix thoroughly. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Add the yoghurt and apreadable cheddar cheese heat through. Serve on rice with a salad and Indian bread if desired.

Thank you for a lovely dinner hon...you are a great chef. Next time lagi yaaa...hihihi. ;))
