Butter Chicken

Save-on Foods had Patak's curry pastes on sale when I was there the other week, so I picked up a jar of butter chicken sauce. I love Patak's; I always have a jar of mild curry paste on hand because it's easy to use and very versatile.

I've only had butter chicken a few times in my life, and I've always liked it as long as the spice was kept down. This mild sauce was perfect.

I used the directions on the jar!

This was soooooooooo gooooooooood! Rich and wonderful and just perfect. And it took no time at all! I'll definitely be making this again, and am thinking it would actually be good with shrimp, and even salmon. Hmmmm...

I love Indian food. I work with all indian doctors. I like a little heat, though.

Like Tia, Butter Chicken is one of my fave dishes too. Served with some naan or a papadam and rice...mmmmmm. Delicious. I used to make my own version but no longer have the spice mixture a friend used to make for me. This is equally yummy.

Good to know their sauces are so good. I love Patak's mango pickle and lime pickle. Yum!

Butter chicken and Patek's sauce are all new to me. I know so little about Indian cooking. The recipe looks easy and delicious!

I always like Murgh Makani (also known in wetern world as butter chicken). Yours look scrumptious indeed, ever wonder how to make this from a scratch? You might be surprise how easy it is.

in the US you can generally get Patak's at any Asian market as well...good stuff, I agree.
