I have never had that problem when cooking Indian. I see how you could but if you are only cooking it once in a while I don't think that will be a problem. This recipe doesn't have any curry powder and only a little cumin so this is a good one to make that will not smell the house up.

re: Butter Chicken - with pics
Indian food is the most underrated ethnic cuisine in the States. Our neighbor growing up was from India, and he used to invite our family over every month or so for these 6-7 course feasts. They cooked some of the best food I've had, even to this day.

As he got more and more comfortable with the region and started experimenting, he began trying to tackle some Cajun recipes with a little Indian infusion. It will probably be blasphemy to some on here, but the man has beyond perfected gumbo. It's palette-changing it's so good.

It pisses me off so much how underrepresented Indian food is around here. I'm going to try make this. I'd appreciate any other recipes you try and really like!

Because not everyone believes that saturated fat is completely harmless. I have no problem with low-carb dieters, but I try to eat a diet with lots of veggies, fruits, legumes, and healthy fats. I still try to minimize saturated fats.

But they are. Unless you have some recent studies?

It is literally a can of tomato sauce. It is pureed tomato, basically. I get the Red Gold brand.

Sorry to hear that. Curious what it was that you didn't care for. Wonder if I missed something in the recipe. Or perhaps this just isn't something you cared for.

To be fair I didn't follow it 100%. Differences, I used chicken thighs, added a little paprika to the marinade, didn't use fresh garlic, used half in half.

How much salt did you use? I added about 2 tsp.

if you go to an indian grocery store, they'll have dozens of spice mix packets for every indian dish you've ever heard of. They have pretty straightforward directions and most take 15-20 minutes to cook. I usually pick up 3 or 4 of them whenever I go. Palak Paneer is my favorite.

Ah, I have not yet changed the recipe around so perhaps those changes could make a difference. The half and half may not be rich enough or creamy enough.

I just salted as I went along. Salted the chicken a little, salted the onions a little and then a dash at the end. However, I am not big on salt at all. I am not the best person to ask about how much salt to use.

Made this tonight. Flavor was great but chicken was a bit tough. Might do thighs next time

re: Butter Chicken - with pics
I have had issues with the chicken being tough before, I find the key is to give yourself enough time to simmer the chicken in the sauce and too make sure your pieces aren't too big as that would take even longer. When I brown the chicken I pretty much cook it through completely so that during the simmering process it can hopefully tenderize. No idea if that is how it works but seems to work for me. Thighs should work just fine and are never as tough as breast meat but I prefer to breast meat when it is cooked correctly.

I had this for leftovers the last couple of days and damn, it is even better.

Check with ChatRabbit77, you are probably not cooking it for enough whistles.
