This was wonderful!

It made quite a bit of sauce, so I used 2 lbs of diced chicken and also added a full bag of Trader Joe's seafood mix (shrimp, scallops, squid). Still had ample sauce and was mouthwateringly good!

I served this for lunch with low carb flour tortillas on the side. A green salad or other vegetables would also go nicely for a dinner.

I also used 2 larger serrano chilis (with seeds) in mine. It had a definite kick, I'd call it medium-hot...perfect for my taste!

It sure does but I was able to put the leftovers in the freezer and made a smaller batch the following week and adding in some fresh steamed broccoli. We LOVE this recipe a great deal.

Finally got around to making this last night and DH and I both give it . I made a double batch because I had a little over 3lbs of chix thighs defrosted. Served it with basmati rice (for DH) and steamed broccoli. SOOOOOOO DELISH! This is a keeper for sure. Next time I will add another chile for a little extra kick.


Leftovers for lunch today are even bettah!

I think KevinPA made some flatbreads - not sure where the recipe is though, I know it's on this forum someplace. If I find it I'll post the link.

I just got a package of palak paneer from Trader Joe's so I'm about ready to make some more butter chicken too, and have the paneer with it.

Subscribing. I made murg makhani (butter chicken) for our historical society Tuesday night, then served it over quinoa. Delish! I found the recipes on other sites, blended 4 recipes together, but the OP's recipe seems easier, so I may do that next time. I really think you need to marinade the chicken in lime, chili powder (Indian chili, not American!), yogurt and garam masala though, to get a good flavor. Just my opinion...

Not sure how authentic the recipe is as I have nothing in my history to compare it to, but this is still one of my favorite meals to fix. Dollkey, you need to find that corriander--quick!

Yeah, we watched Aarti's show on chicken tikka masala and she said it's not really a typical Indian dish - makes me wonder if this is that way too - doesn't much matter to me, this is one of our favorite meals!

So difficult to find spices here. I live in a crappy town for shopping.

Aptos Gal, you should be able to get it at either the Capitola or Santa Cruz Whole Foods market - that's where my favorite one came from - in the area where they sell spices and teas out of Mason jars, you can pack up how much you want. Their garam masala was more clove-y than some others I had gotten and it was SOOOO GOOD!

The one I just got (a pound of it!) is nearly identical to that though, and FAR less expensive - I did order it from Nuts Online. It's really good stuff!

Char did you make the paneer?

I've made ricotta and it's easy. I have a friend in Knit Wits that
is Indian and vegetarian. She has said that anytime I want she
will teach me to cook some of her dishes. I think she was born
in New Delhi....she is having us for our bi-monthly meeting but
won't make her own dishes, for fear that we won't like them.
I tried to assure her that we would love to try her homey dishes.

I did make the paneer, it came out pretty well for the first go-round! We liked it and ate it with the butter chicken sauce and a handful of peas thrown in. Yum.

Wow, wish I knew somebody who'd cook some REAL authentic Indian food for me!

Actually I DO - the gal who took over my position at the medical office when I retired. She brought in a chicken dish one day and called me and told me to come taste some - she had made it very mild though (because everyone else in that office is a wuss! ) and she had hacked the chicken up into bite sized pieces but it still had the bone in it - made it hard to eat!

OMG this is fabulous!! I love Indian food and have cooked it 3 days in a row! I microwaved a couple of turnips until they were just barely starting to soften (less than 2 minutes), peeled them and cut them into chunks and added those along with a can of chickpeas turning it into sort of a butter chicken stew. With or without the extra veggies this is a winner!!!! I even know how to make some great naan but way too carby but I sure could imagine how wonderful it would have been to sop up some of that sauce with a piece. I guess a low-carb tortilla would almost do the same thing but I had already upped the carbs with the veggies.

We have made this countless times now! It's so good.

My favorite garam masala comes from either the bulk spices at Whole Foods, or prepackaged from Nuts Online. Every blend is a bit different - those two are both more "cinnamony/clovey" than others I've had which have been heavier on the cumin. So you might have to try a couple and see what you prefer!

Char, I bought some from a local farmers market that was very cinnamon/clovey and one I bought from Penzeys was more of a coriander/cardamom flavor. I agree, love this recipe!

I just made this and love it. I would make it spicier, but DH can not stand the heat! I'm also at a loss for what to put it on...Naan bread would be great...but I obviously am not going to eat it! Rice? A no no, too... Don't have time to make up any LC bread... I might have some LC biscuits in the freezer. I didn't plan very well!

I can't wait to try the Tiki Masala!

We eat ours with quinoa. You could use riced cauliflower too.

Thinly slice some Serrano peppers and add those to your serving when you plate it up! We love the garnishes - peppers, fresh sweet onion, sliced radishes, whatever you like.
