Best Butter Chicken

I grew up in a mostly South Asian community and I quickly found what I loved. This recipe may have a lot of ingredients for everyday cooking in your RV but it makes a wonderful special occasion dish with enough to invite friends.


 2-3 pounds chicken cut in 2 inch cubes
 1 large onion, diced
 1 Tablespoon crushed garlic
 1 Tablespoon crushed ginger
 oil for frying
-=[ Spices ]=- 1 Tablespoon cumin 1 Tablespoon Tandoori Masala 1 Tablespoon Garam Masala 1 Tablespoon turmeric 1 Tablespoon coriander 1 Tablespoon white sugar Bay leaf
-=[ Sauce ]=- 1 can tomato paste 1 large tub Balkan-style plain yogurt, Greek-style works too 2 pints cream, whipping or heavy


Heat oil in pot. Add diced onion, crushed garlic, and crushed ginger. Cook stirring frequently just till the onions are transparent. Add cubed chicken and all spices. Cook on high turning the chicken often so not to burn. When chicken is cooked add tomato paste, yogurt and cream. Turn heat down and simmer for about 2 hours stirring as needed to keep the bottom from sticking.

Serve with Basmati rice and warmed Naan bread.

Serves: 6 to 8

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
