    Default Indian Butter Chicken

    This is from Betty Crocker's Indian Home Cooking. It's a great cookbook if you like something a bit different. The recipes have been lightened up but are still very authentic.

    Butter Chicken

    1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast cut crosswise into 1/2 in. strips
    1/4 cup heavy cream
    2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh ginger
    5 medium cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tsp. ground coriander seed
    1/2 tsp. ground cumin seed
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
    2 tbsp. butter
    1/2 cup tomato sauce
    1/4 cup finely chopped fresh or 2 tbsp. crumbled dried fenugreek leaves (methi in Indian groceries)

    Mix all ingredients except butter, tomato sauce and fenugreek in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.

    Heat butter in 10 inch skillet over medium heat. Add chicken mixture and tomato sauce. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, or until chicken is partially cooked.

    Stir in fenugreek, reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

    If you can't find the fenugreek, you may substitute watercress.

    Don't be afraid of the heavy cream or's split over 4 servings and the flavour it adds is without comparison. Enjoy.
