All you need is

Chicken Boneless (Thigh or Breast Meat) – 250 gms  cut into small cubes.

Kashmiri red chilli powder – 1tsp

Yoghurt – 1 cup

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Fresh coriander – 1 tbsp

Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp

Make a fine paste with all the above and keep .

Turmeric – 1 pinch


Wash and pat dry the chicken pieces and chop into cubes,Now heat a pan and add few drops of oil and saute chicken till the pinkness disappears,sprinkle a pinch of turmeric and salt and stir till  liquid evaporates.Remove and keep.

Sauteed Boneless Chicken

Now in a large bowl take the prepared paste and drop the sauteed chicken and keep marinated for an hr or atleast 30 mins.

Heat pan and add oil and butter as it gets heated through pour the marinated mixture of chicken along with the marinade and stir continuosly on low to med heat to avoid curdling of the yoghurt .

As it starts boiling ,let cook for 7-10 mins on low and add the fresh cream and chopped fresh coriander.Add salt if required.

Butter Chicken

Normally the chicken appears orange in colour in restaurants due to food colour,But I’ve avoided it ,rather added a pinch of turmeric.

Transfer into another dish and serve hot with Nans or Parathas or Rotis.
