This is a Guest Ditty I have been waiting for. Cynthia makes some of the best butter chicken I’ve ever had and I finally was able to tease the recipe out of her.
If you are not familiar with Butter Chicken (also known as Murgh Makhani), it is a traditional Indian dish made with chicken simmered in a mild curry sauce. Generally pink or orange in color, it is a very pleasant smelling and looking dish. Because of the type of curry, it generally does not have an overpowering scent like some other curry dishes.
Last weekend we had a reunion with my son’s old swim team friends. We were a pretty tight nit group and we all worked hard to keep the team running so our kids could have the best environment for their sport. As our kids separated from the team, we found that we still really enjoy hanging out with each other, so last weekend was our summer reunion.
I asked everyone to bring something that they could share with us at Dish Ditty. But, to Cynthia, I specifically asked for her Butter Chicken recipe. She has been making this for us since I joined the team and it is one of the things I look forward to at our gatherings (the next is Jerly’s Pancit).
I haven’t made this myself yet, but now I have the recipe and can try it out. I’m so excited! Now, time to get cookin’! ENJOY!
