Butter chicken has been a regular dish in our house I usually buy the premade dishes from Woolworths or Coles. I finally tried out this recipe that was going around the page and it did not disappoint. Only changes I made was to double the spices, left out the coriander (not a fan) and added 300ml cooking cream in the last 30mins definitely will be making it like this from now on πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»

I would give it a go in a dump bag for sure πŸ™‚
But I wouldn’t pre cook anything

do you think this would work in a dump bag? If so would you pre-cook onion and garlic and thicken the sauce first? Thank you for your advice.

I do yes πŸ™‚

Not quite restaurant quality although had lots of flavour and mild heat …….the fussy eater who says everything is too spicy enjoyed the dish. I cooked this following the recipe and found it a bit to runny when finished.
On the ease to create scale I rate this 7/10

Really nice but needed the cream at the end. We didn’t not find it spicy at all. I added the chilli as per the recipe and my 7 month old, 2 year old and 3 year old all loved it. It was a little mild for me.

I made this today. I used chicken thighs and also added the cream like Pauline an hour before serving. It was absolutely delicious…(although I’d have to say it doesn’t taste much like the butter chicken we get from our local Indian restaurant)

This recipe is awesome although I reduced the chilli to 1/8 tsp and it still had some heat in it (too much for the kids). I also added about 100mls of cream about 45 minutes before serving. Hubby couldn’t believe it had come out of the slow cooker, super yum!!!!

My kids made this for dinner while I was at work, so not sure if they added & measured everything correctly lol, but we all found it delish! Will definately add the cream in next time πŸ™‚

My hubby, son and I loved this butter chicken recipe. I didn’t add the coriander because I don’t like it. Will definitely be making again and again. Thankyou for sharingπŸ˜€πŸ‘

Did anyone actually pre brown things in a pan? Cause I find it so much easier to skip this and throw it all in the sc πŸ™‚

So disappointed, followed the recipe perfectly and this tasted absolutely nothing like butter chicken and was fairly bland. I’d seen everyone talk about it so much and I was so excited to try it but, it was a complete let down.

Does anyone know if any of the other butter chicken recipes are better?

I used paste as per recipe πŸ™‚

That’s no good!
We followed it and LOVED it :))
Maybe your cooker is one that cooks hot if it’s overdone?
I found the time perfect?

Do you gave to use so much tomato paste or can you use tinned tomatoes and some paste?

Just had this for dinner, put it on for 5 hours followed the instructions and it tastes absolutely horrible 😒😒 I have no idea what went wrong but I’m so disappointed!!

Love this!
So first time ever cooking with a slow cooker. I picked this recipe and it did not disappoint everyone in my family agrees this is better then store brought jars.

β€’ I left out the coriander
β€’ and left out the chilli (for my toddler)

β€’ added about 150-200ml cream half an hour before serving.

Turned out great:)

I made this today and it turned out great.

I added some cream 1 hour before serving, and also added a few tablespoons of cashew butter and brown sugar to sweeten it up a bit as I found it a bit bland when I tasted it. But after adding these few things it was very tasty!

I served it with some saffron rice also which made the whole dish super yummy.

If you double the chicken, do you double everything else pauline@slow cooker central?

Wendy

This is so yummy. I used a small can of coconut cream and a small UHT of lite evaporated milk and then some coconut essence just to lower the fat a little – and I will add less curry powder as we use keens and my guys found it too spicy!! But it was the best tasting recipe ever and I’ve been searching for a great butter chicken recipe forever!!

Too spicy. Also it waa nice but just felt like it was missing something. I’d say it’s definitely missing butter.

LOVE LOVE LOVED this recipe!!
I adore butter chicken but I’ve always paid nearly $15 a dish for take away.
I was able to make this entire recipe for less than that and it tasted just like the real thing!

I added 300ml of cooking cream in the last hour just because I like it creamy and to drop the heat level a little bit
And I skipped the cilantro as I don’t like it

But I KNOW this recipe is going to be a weekly staple in my house now πŸ™‚

Thanks for sharing xx

In the last hour it’s added πŸ™‚
I’ve fixed that info now for you too x

Is cilantro for garnish or does it go into slow cooker?

I made this for the family with a 4 year old and 2.5 year.old. they don’t mind Spicey food and regularly eat butter chicken. I.made this with the half recommended amount of chilli (so 1/4 tsp). It still packed quite a punch! Perhaps try this with 1/8 tsp if making for younger members then increase chilli next time til youbat happy with volume.
