Butter chicken as we all know is one of the most favourite dish for almost all of the Indian population who are hardcore non – vegetarians . A dish which whenever comes in my mind makes me a happy person . Some dishes as we know is never out of the menu and butter chicken is one of them. The taste of that melt in mouth chicken , that creaminess of the tomato gravy , the butter ummmmhhhh 🙂  ….. we can always have it with plain rice, chapati , naan and its leaves us in a satisfied mood. Today m just going to make that butter chicken but with a simple twist. Being a newbee in writing a blog (my first post so please ignore my mistakes ) i may overwrite somethings so please bear with me. Hoping to get a good view from everyone and please do try . HOPE U ALL ENJOY….. BON APPETIT   🙂

1. Chicken = 500 gms  ( preferably boneless) 

2. Salt – as per your taste 

3.Ginger – garlic paste – 1 tablespoon,

4.Yogurt -3/4 tablespoon,

5.Lemon juice- 2 teaspoon,

6.Pepper- 1/2 teaspoon,

7. Garam masala-1/2 teaspoon,

8. Jeera powder – 1/2 teaspoon,

9. Kashmiri lal mirch-1/2 teaspoon

10. Grill rack (which can be used in gas)

** For the gravy :

1.3-4 medium sized onions(make a fine paste)

2.1 large ripe tomato(make a fine paste)

3.Ginger-garlic paste-2 teaspoon



6 .Jeera powder-2 teaspoon,

7. Garam masala powder – 1 teaspoon

8.Pepper powder-1/2 teaspoon,

9.Turmeric powder- 1/4 teaspoon,

10.Whole spices i.e 2/3 cloves, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 green cardamom pods, bay leaves -1

11.Cream-3/4 amul pack

12. Sugar- 1 teaspoon

13.Salt (as per your taste )


Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients listed under marination and cover the bowl with a cling film n fridge it overnight for better results or a minimum of 1-2 hours complusory. In a non stick pan put 2/3 tablespoon of oil n about 1/4 of an amul butter(100 gms pack). When the oil and butter gets a bit heated up then add the whole spices and  sugar and fry them for about a min  so that you can get the aroma from the spices and till the sugar caramelizes.  Add the onion paste , salt (as per your taste ) , turmeric powder and fry for about 10 mins or so then add in the tomato paste and ginger garlic paste ( you can also use green chilli or kashmiri mirch if you want ) . After this add all the spices n cover it and let it simmer for sometime or till the oil separates. In the meanwhile cook the chicken in a pan with a bit of butter in low heat . When the chicken is cooked then brush the rack with oil and put above and heat it for a  min or so . Put 3/4 chicken pieces once at a time n let it get smoked n brush oil on the pieces so that they dont dry up. Turn the pieces with the help of tongs. You will be able to smell the nice smoky aroma from the chicken. Keep aside when done. After the oil separates from the gravy add the chicken pieces fry for like a min or two in the gravy so that the chicken pieces are coated well then add water as per the gravy u want. Check your salt. Now cover n cook for around 15 -20 mins in low heat or till the chicken are soft . When the gravy is a bit thicker pour in the amul cream and mix it well.  Cook for another 3-5 mins  and your  gravy at this point turns to be a bit lighter in colour then previous and its done. Turn off the heat and put a bit of more butter n let it melt itself. Serve your smoked butter chicken with plain rice.. ENJOY 🙂
