Butter Chicken

After being able to satisfy my craving for Indian food by eating out here, I was still wanting a little bit more. But this time, I want to make Matt try Buttered Chicken, which is one of Ate’s favorite Indian (or maybe British Indian) dishes. It is what I call a starter curry. Very mild in the spice, can be crazy in the heat adjusted to your preference. Butter chicken to Indian cuisine is Green curry to Thai cuisine.

Of course, i was going to make this from scratch, how else? I used this recipe loosely. And if you don’t know me yet, all recipes are guides for me. I never follow exact measurements. I ended up missing my favorite mortar and pestle which I left in Manila. It is just too heavy and cumbersome to bring. I remember buying that after my cooking class in Bali and being amazed by their beautiful grinding stones. I ended up grating the ginger and mincing the garlic for this one. I do not mind the preparation. It is one of the most relaxing things in my everyday, preparing food.
