Butter Chicken or Makhani Chicken

Makhan is butter in hindi. Therefore Makhani chicken is called Butter Chicken. This special chicken dish has the flavors of India without the overwhelming spices. Creamy. slightly tangy and sweet; this is a mild curry. It is very popular in many Indian restaurants here in the US. This is a good dish to order if you have never eaten Indian food. 

It is high in fat as the ingredients suggest, but you can always make it lower in fat by using the alternative ingredients.

4 to 6 leg/thigh pieces shredded or cut into bite sized pieces Tandoori chicken  
2 1/2 cups Tomato puree  
2 Tablespoons plain flour
1/2 cup Heavy Cream or Fat free yogurt  
1 teaspoon red chili powder   
6 Tablespoons butter  
2 Star Anise    
2 teaspoons Sugar   
Salt to taste  
Heavy cream to garnish

Mix the tomato puree, flour and the heavy cream or the yogurt. Heat the butter, when the foam has almost subsided, add the star anise. Stir, now add the red chili powder.  Add the chicken and salt to taste. Now add the tomato puree mixture. Mix well. The sauce will start to thicken. Garnish with heavy cream. 

It is yummy with Naan and accompanied with Onion Salat

Quick Tip: Used canned pureed tomatoes. Itís easy! Always keep pureed tomatoes on hand; they come in handy when fresh tomatoes are not in season.

Quick tip: Use fat free yogurt if you would like to reduce the fat content in the recipe.
