Butter chicken is an absolute favourite in our house, and something that my partner will often request for dinner if he feels we haven't had it in a while (which can often only be a week to long in his eyes!), so when Miss 4 decided out of the blue that she now loves butter chicken he was rather happy as it meant I was more likely to cook it often for him, it's so much easier to make a dish the whole family will eat than 2 separate meals to keep everyone happy.
When I saw the Street Kitchen North Indian Butter Chicken up for review I was keen to give it a try, I loved the fact that it had EVERYTHING that you needed in this little kit other than the rice and chicken and also the fact that it contained a pouch of real whole herbs and spices, as I must admit as much as we love butter chicken our butter chicken does come out of a fellow companies pouch in which I'd say it is very processed, and still needs several ingredients including cream to make the sauce, it obviously tastes good but this just seemed much easier and better for us.
Funnily enough driving home with my review goods I could smell an Indian spice in my car and realised that this must have been from the sauce, same thing at home every time I opened the pantry there was the smell, as much as I found it to be a tad annoying I was also pleased as you could this product was really made of quality ingredients and that this would mean it was going to be full of flavour, always a good thing. In the pack were 3 separate pouches which were all well sealed and easy to open by pulling across the plastic rip in the packets. The packaging I loved the colds were bold and really stood out and I loved the different textures used on this and how they had not wasted any space it was really interesting to read all about the history behind the delicious dish that is Butter Chicken on the inside of the cardboard.
When it came to preparing this dish it could not have been easier, the well labeled packaged food cases really helped with this. I first popped my diced chicken into a dish and let it marinade in garlic and ginger paste, while I heated the frypan with the oil. Next came the step which you really need to ensure you read, after heating the oil to a very HIGH heat you add the spice mix NOT the chicken, you will know if it is hot enough after you hear a crackling noise, you only leave this for about 5 seconds before adding the marinated chicken to the mix, this is done to release the flavours from the herbs and spices. Once the chicken is sealed you add the Butter Chicken Sauce and leave to simmer until cooked through. THroughout the cooking process the smell was amazing full of a rich aroma of herbs and spices, it smelt just like butter chicken should. The only thing I will admit had me a bit unsure was if or when to remove some of the larger herbs from the pan, as there were some big bits such as the cardamon pods and the cassia stick, this wasn't mentioned so I chose to do so anyone, I'm sure no one wanted to be eating a cassia stick after all?
Taste Wise amazing! One of the best butter chickens I have had full of flavour, rich and creamy and not to spicy at all, the balance of tomato and spice flavors was spot on, the whole family loved this served with rice and naan bread and it made a heap that there was a lot left over which I turned into butter chicken pies for dinner the next day, however this time around I decided to make the sauce a bit creamier so added some greek yoghurt as I had no cream on hand, and I can tell you eating this with the greek yoghurt and the following day was even better. Miss 4 kept asking for more and my partner said it was a lot more like what you would get at an Indian takeaway than our usual sauce we use.
This is sure to be a butter chicken I will buy again, I think the price is great value for money as it contains everything you need, and most importantly it tastes delicious. I can't wait to find it at my local supermarket one day soon.
