Butter Chicken

What you need: 

3 tablespoons of Earth Balance margarine
1 onion
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 small cloves of crushed garlic
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 package Yves veggie tenders, chicken flavor (or equivalent)
1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
398mL (14onz) can diced tomatoes with juice
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/3 cup Silk brand soy coffee creamer

What you do: 

Finely chop the onions. Heat a large saucepan or frying pan and melt the E.B. until it is frothy. Add the onions and the cinnamon to the pan and fry lightly. When the onions are soft stir in the crushed garlic. Then add the ginger, garam masala, turmeric, chili and coriander, and sauté over a medium heat. The spices are fried first to release their maximum flavor and this really enhances the dish. Add the chicken and sauté stirring constantly. Scoop in the sunflower seed butter, tomatoes and tomato paste. Mix thoroughly. Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes (you may need to add a little water). Add the coffee creamer and heat through. Serve on brown basmati rice.

I would like to share that 'MOTI MAHAL' is a chain of resturants in India amd pakistan and they are considered as the inventors of BUTTER CHICKEN, they cooked it in 19th centurary. Thank you



Totally LOVE this recipe! It's insanely flavorful and has become one of my comfort foods.


This recipe is AMAZING!  So delicious!  The seasonings are perfect.


Thank you for providing this recipe, it was awesome.  My meat eating husband loves butter chicken so I decided to give this a try and he loved it.  He thought it tasted just like the meat version.  I have never had the meat version, all I know is this is now in my favourites list and I will be making it again and again.


This was amazing!!!  The only change I made was substituting the creamer with 1/3 cup plain soy yogurt, as was suggested.  Turned out great!!!  I will most certainly be making this again, and again, and again. :)


This was absolutely delicious!  I'm really surprised this recipe hasn't gotten more attention than it has, this is one of the tastiest things ever!

I made a few variations, nothing big enough to tell about.  I had bhindi masala on the side, YUM!!!
Everyone needs to make this for real.  Thank you for posting this, it is definitely going to be a regular in the CK household!
