It started off looking like the perfect rice tower....but within seconds it descended into this perfect rice gemors 🤣 served with my cheat’s butter chicken...don’t laugh when you hear what’s my cheat (ok I lie, you can laugh but you will likely do it too 🤣🤣) _
One day long time ago we bought butter chicken from Taste of India (you are welcome to insert the name of your butter chicken maestro of an Indian restaurant here) and I noticed we always have the sauce leftover. Plus let’s face it, homemade butter chicken is just not the same no matter HOW many recipes you try!
So I froze the leftover sauce....flippin brilliant!!!! Next time I wanted butter chicken, I sliced up my chicken, cooked it a bit in some ginger garlic masala, ghee and a bit of water. Added salt, turmeric, pinch of chilli and 1/2 saffron colouring (not real saffron, just the colouring, use more turmeric or a drop of egg yellow if you don’t have), then add the frozen leftover sauce, 1 tub fresh cream with about 1tsp of maizena whisked in and cook til done and fairly thick. And BOOM....you have the most authentic tasting bawwwsss kinda-homemade butter chicken ever!!! _
You are now thinking about all the times you shouldn’t have let that sauce go, you shouldn’t have used that naan to lick up the last bits, you SHOULD have frozen it for this lazy wife hack. P.S. don’t forget to act like you toiled hard making this and avoid all questions from guests (and mother-in-law) asking for the recipe 🤣
